From Vatican News:
At 5pm on Friday, August 2, the first visitors will be welcomed into the Alpine home where Albino Luciani grew up.
The village where he was born, in the magnificent Dolomite Mountains, 976 meters above sea level, is called Canale d’Agordo. It was once an economic hub for the entire Biois Valley thanks to mining and forging activities. Now, every year, pilgrims come to visit the place that gave birth to Pope Albino Luciani: the Smiling Pope. A press release informs that the house, that became the property of the diocese following a deed signed in June, has not yet officially been inaugurated. However, as promised by Bishop Corrado Pizziolo of Vittorio Veneto, “everything is being done so that pilgrims can visit the ground floor and the first floor of the house where Luciani was born and was baptized as from the beginning of August.” Thus, he said, “it is a place of considerable interest!”
