    Fido's master?

  • Description

    After fourteen long years Fido still waits for his master - but in vain.

    Fido's master was killed is a bombardment in 1943, and every day since then the dog has not missed a single day at the bus terminal to meet the bus which used to bring his master back home from work in Florence.

    Everybody in Borgo San Lorenzo knows faithful Fido - now eighteen years old and showing signs of advancing years - and today is a special day. For Fido is to receive special honour from the towns-people of Borgo Sand Lorenzo.

    Crowds gather in the wet to watch the Mayor of Borgo present Fido with a gold medal inscribed "To Fido - a good dog - November 1957".

    The touching little ceremony over Fido sends his lonely way back home again after yet another day of fruitless waiting for his dead master.
