Italy. After 44 years, a postcard from the south to the north of the country arrived

After 44 years, a postcard from the south to the north of the country arrived in Italy. A young parishioner who went to Taranto in Puglia to perform military service sent a postcard to the chaplain of the cathedral in Chioggia in the Veneto region.

Diary “Corriere della Sera” reported that in December 1977, an 18-year-old from Chioggia, who was called up for basic military service and sent to a naval unit in Apulia, decided to symbolically say goodbye to his friends from the parish at the cathedral in connection with the beginning of a new phase in his life.

He sent all his colleagues a postcard from his unit in Taranto, and addressed it to Father Francesco Zenny, then a young cathedral chaplain and youth protector.

The postcard was delivered after 44 years

He stuck two stamps for 120 lire and threw them into the box. What then happened with the postcard – it is not known; whether it was lost in the warehouse or remained at the bottom of the bag of mail for delivery. Unexpectedly on Saturday, after 44 years she was delivered with other mail to the cathedral.
“It was a real surprise,” said Father Zenna, who continues his ministry in the same diocese but not in the cathedral.

As he explained, he did not have the postcard in his hands yet, because the postman brought it to the house near the cathedral, where he lived in the 1970s. The current parish priest informed him about the late postcard by phone. With his help, Father Zenna has already contacted the sender of the card to thank him.

For the first time in his life he was leaving his hometown

– We spoke on the phone. In 1977, he was a young boy leaving his hometown, family, parish and friends for the first time in his life. It was a special moment and he remembers it well, just as I remember him. Today he is the father of the family and the grandfather – added the addressee of the unique postcard.

The closing words written by the young soldier to his friends from his city: “I will come quickly to you” have a special meaning in this story.

The postcard was in no hurry – it was noted in the journal.
