On the issue of November of “Portanuova”, a cultural periodical from Monopoli, Professor Giacomo Campanelli wrote an interesting article about the political works of Franco Ratti, compared to Davide Maria Turoldo, another prophet and poet. The title of the article is: “The heresy of brotherhood. The greek archangels the viking female angel, the angels of Don Franco …and other angels.”
To our “internauti” friends we offer one of the most significant poems written by Don Franco. The one in memory of his sister, passed away some years ago.

With the moon
mother of the dead and sister of the angels
my sister has returned
sea swallow
free and lover.
