Today February 15, is the patronal feast day of Brescia. Faustino and Giovita, warrior saints from the second century AD, are celebrated. During the siege of the Lombards in Brescia (VII century), they appeared on the city’s walls and defended it. A proverb says that San Faustino is the last merchant of snow. And just this morning, getting up at 5 am, I found the very welcome surprise of seeing snow. A sight that does not leave one indifferent. All white, all calm: all that remains is to be enchanted to watch. Today also comes into force the mandatory vaccination for the over-50s. Who is more hostile towards people (elderly, children, workers): the snow or the elite of the universal masters?
