    Rome: Thousands of Sikhs attended yesterday the inauguration ceremony of a major new temple in Italy’s farming heartland in the Po River Valley, where many members of the community work as livestock farmers.

    A helicopter dropped flower petals at the event in Pessina Cremonese, which was attended by Sikhs from across northern Italy as well as mayor Dalido Malaggi who thanked the Sikh community for reviving the region’s declining farming sector.

    “The Sikhs have saved the local economy,” Malaggi said. “They work in the farming businesses where our young people don’t go any more.” AFP

    This is the area in Italy where we are reading. North Central, in alignment with Venice to the east, on the Adriatic coast. This is very rich farmland. The area settled from the Etruscan times.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
