Moscati a God's man!!
18 October 2017 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

Just after to watch this full length mini-series with almost four hour ,l've been searching on Wikipedia about the fabulous Doctor to confirm all about him,although RAI made too many dramatization around the character,most of things really happened,indeed l'd already saw this kind of person in many stories through the history like Mother Theresa,St. Francis ,Bezerra de Menezes,Sister Dulce...anyway Doctor Moscati is one those God's men whose are seeded around world by a superior intelligence or something like that to support the homeless,poor and invisible kinds!!!
