It was not easy to write but now I think it is difficult to forget. This first biography of Giliana Faglia the result is, in fact, a long job search, made up of interviews, confidences of witnesses, some page Father Raschi, very few of Giliana, which preferred to rely on oral transmission of thought rather than its written report.
Alessandro Massobrio had thus reconstruct the personality of the seer without having provided any previous text that could in some way act as guide. The result was the character of the book, which presents itself not as an official biography but rather as an album of memories, in which, instead of yellowed photographs, the flash appears - back to a past more or less remote.
Moments happy, less happy, sad, fragments of hope, decisive meetings, relations with the supernatural and those who were in the supernatural and am still so immersed constitute the fabric of a life lived - to use an expression dannunziana - so inimitable . But for Giliana the inimitabilità category is not human but divine, which are inimitable Christ and the Virgin Mary and who is, as you did, to follow them, knows that the model will always adeguabile and never adequate, again reach and never reached.
That is why I said that if this biography was not easy to write, will be even more difficult to forget. Especially on the part of the author of these pages, he received from the field in his book narrated a signal that somehow marked and probably forever will mark its existence. But this was the style Giliana: present to others in a silent, almost resigned, and then transmit the spark capable of illuminating the night, to guide the march in the darkness.
We hope that everyone has to read it draws the same lighting that is riverberata on the face of the author. The fable of the little fiammiferaia teaches us that if the holes are counted, the dawn is near.
