Milan Beast Inaugurated

in the Esperanto Garden in Cormano, near Milan

In his inaugural address the mayor of Cormano, Mr Roberto Cornelli, criticised the municipal government of Milan, which had no understanding of the symbolism of My Inner Beast. Due to their narrow-minded outlook they had just confiscated the sculpture and for 11 years kept it sequestered in a municipal depot, until the Esperanto Association of Milan succeeded to redeem the Beast. It goes without saying that the Milan City Hall were conspicuous by their absence.

In his speech Mr Giovanni Conti, the owner of the Esperanto Garden, emphasized the affinity between the ideals of the Esperanto movement and the plea for tolerance symbolised by the My Inner Beast.
