On the outside wall if the medieval Santo Spirito complex there is a old turning door where people could leave things- or very small people – at the hospital.

Just nice.

    RE the little turning gate- what a compassionate response to a perennial human problem! It’s too bad that compassion now means killing.

    Hey, Fr. Z! Edmonton seminary giant snowfun!

    Sort of the diametric opposite to sunny Italy….

    My home state, Arizona, allows a person to drop off an infant at the hospital within 72 hours of birth – no questions asked. I guess the modern answer to the “turning door”.

    Rabbit is common in Italy, is it not? I wonder why it seems to have never caught on as a usual dish here in the states? I love it!

    That poor rabbit. I bet he was delicious though.

    Rabbit, sure. I’m more intrigued by the sauce.

    That rabbit looks so good. I love rabbit. We used to eat a lot of it when I was a child.
