News from Corriere della Sera & The Telegraph

It seems that in addition to Mother's Day and Father's Day, the people of Lombardy have begun celebrating Grandparents' Day. The 'festa dei nonni' celebrates the role of grandparents in 'the transmission of wisdom and experience of life and death.'
They also publish this picture of hostage Kenneth Bigley's wife praying in a Buddhist temple in Thailand. Mrs Bigley has made a vow that she will be come a nun (Buddhist, presumably) if her husband is freed. They also include this shot from China of a man balancing a 150 kilo car on his head.
Over at the Telegraph we have this story about a missing page being restored to the Sforza Book of Hours.
