The theme (“Lord, make me an instrument of your peace“) found a proper background in the city of St. Francis. Its medieval art masterpieces, such as the Basilica of San Francesco (World Heritage Site) and paintings by Cimabue, Pietro Lorenzetti, Simone Martini and Giotto, have made Assisi a fundamental reference point for the development of Italian and European art and architecture. Today the town is an important place of pilgrimage for many groups coming to enjoy the simple peace of St. Francis.

The accomodation and the meeting works took place in the Spirituality House “Oasi Sacro Cuore”, a peaceful place located just outside the entrance to the old Assisi town site.
