Marking the 50th anniversary of Don Lorenzo Milani’s death. A souvenir sheet of 2 stamps issued by San Marino Post

June 11th, 2017

Lorenzo Milani Comparetti was a priest of the Catholic Church in Italy. He is best known as an educator of poor children.

To mark the 50th anniversary of Don Lorenzo Milani’s death San Marino Post has released a special souvenir sheet of two stamps that recommends to all collectors.

Don Lorenzo Milani is considered a point of reference for socially active Catholicism on account of his civil commitment to education of the poor, his defence of conscientious objection and the pedagogical value of his experience as an educator.

The souvenir sheet represents two famous portraits of this educator surrounded by young people. The quotation refers to his prophecy regarding peace with the elimination of imperialist regimes.
