Albano Carrisi unleashed the bishop’s anger. All the fault of his performance in the Church. “No one is allowed to use the liturgy as a stage to organize performances by artists of any kind. It would be a serious offense to the celebration and to the sacred place”, thundered the bishop of the diocese of Andria, Monsignor Luigi Mansi.
It was he who celebrated the religious wedding of a young couple during which the singer Al Bano performed. In fact, from the Curia they explain that “priests have the task of verifying compliance with these norms, given that the organizers may not even know them, because no more episodes are repeated of this kind. “For Bishop Al Bano he should have sung during the party in the reception room and not in the church.
Yet that of the singer from Cellino San Marco was a real surprise, no one was aware of his presence. Al Bano would have been invited by one of the closest friends of the young couple married, Alessandra Di Chio (former FI Giovani coordinator) e Michele Prisciandaro. Hence the decision to entertain the guests with a song, which did not go down to the religious who decided to beat the songwriter. As if he had committed the worst of crimes.
