expo Sabastiya VicenzaThe exhibition  “Sabastiya, the fruits of history and the memory of John the Baptist”, hosted inside the Biblical Festival of Vicenza from the 18th to the 27th of May, is winning a lot of success. Many visitors stop to admire the pictures exposed in the wonderful location of the Loggia del Capitaniato of Vicenza, reading panels about the site’s archaeological background and so discovering the projects carried out by ATS pro Terra Sancta in this little village of the Palestinian territories.

The exhibition, carried out by ATS pro Terra Sancta, is included inside the new section of the Biblical Festival, named “Linfa dell’Ulivo” (“Lymph of the Olive Tree”):  an international symposium promoted by the Pilgrimage Office of the Diocese of Vicenza and aimed entirely to the Holy Land.

During opening, which took place on the 19th of May in the presence of Carla Benelli, partner of ATS pro Terra Sancta and in charge of the project in Sabastiya, a video was cast, directed by Alessandra Buzzetti expressly for the exhibition. The same video will still be viewable on Friday 25, Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 of this May, still at the Loggia del Capitaniato hosting the exhibition.

Visitors will find, inside the exhibition, a stand with informative material about ATS pro Terra Sancta’s projects, gadgets and photographic books, from the selling of which the Holy Land is collecting funds.
