Also this year the members of the Grand Priory of Italy were called upon to give their contribution to guarantee the vigilance and security of the procession of the Three Kings. The ancient and traditional ceremony, with the arrival of Gaspar, Balthazar and Melchior preceded by about forty figures, took place on the day of the Epiphany, in the Basilica of S. Eustorgio in Milan (where the Chapel of the Magi is located), in the presence of Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio.

It was also the occasion to support the charity event "Bread in the Square", organized by the Capuchin Missionary Friars, where 36 bakers distributed, with the help of the Dames and Knights of the Grand Priory of Italy, about 700 loaves of bread, to collect donations for the construction of an industrial bakery in Ethiopia. Some pictures are attached: the article published by the Corriere della Sera (the most important and well known Italian newspaper), the group of the Three Kings with the Grand Prior of Italy and the Ancient Teca containing the relics of the Three Kings.
