Pier Giorgio's Body Transferred to New Coffin

I have a little update on the preparations for Pier Giorgio's trip to Sydney, Australia. A new coffin (satisfying Australian import requirements) was constructed to hold Pier Giorgio's mortal remains. The transfer has now been completed and the coffin has been placed in the side altar at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Turin. Wanda tells me it is in front of the altar now and can be seen by passers-by until it leaves Italy in mid-June. I will keep you posted on the travel plans. Those of you who are going to be in Turin in the next few weeks will have the special treat of being able to view the coffin which is normally out of view behind the altar. Verso l'alto!
