Cesare Di Pietro, Vicar General of the Metropolitan Archdiocese, who greeted S.E. the Archbishop of Messina.

The celebratory moment continued at the hall of the Institute of the Daughters of Divine Zeal, where the virtues of the second Queen of Italy, personally spasasi for the relief of the Sicilian and Calabrian populations and for the reconstruction of the cities of the Strait, were recalled by the Vicar of Messina and Conte Marullo di Condojanni and the Reverend Mother Superior Sister Ambrosina (FDZ).

Prince Vittorio Emanuele, Duke of Savoy and Prince of Naples, moved a long procession from the Church of the Holy Spirit to reach Largo Seggiola where in 1960, as a token of thanksgiving, the City of Messina erected a monument to Queen Elena, unique in Italy, to present a floral tribute to you. Poste Italiane has granted a special philatelic cancellation for a postcard celebrating the event organized by the Vicariate of the OODD of Messina.
