I recently spent six days in Piedmonte responding to an inquiry about installing some proportion of unMonastic life there. Kei joined me for the last day, when we toured the massive Cittadella just across the bridge - coincidently it was FAI sunday, and we met with the entire historical role playing community of Northern Italy - from Visigoths to Allied Parachute Units. The building complex had impressive qualities that could with time house six or seven thousand unMonasterians, but lies outside of the immediate mission -- which was a rekindling of life in the facilities of the city's Teatro Comunale. This has been written up in the format that I master best. Given more time I would transfer it here, but Solidarity Days here in Athens are claiming my attention -- we may just have got sufficient funds for a Hexayurt build in the glade surrounding the foundations of Plato's Academy. So I'm calculating the length of tape that is necessary.
