And, finally, they point to their own, more recent "latter-day" history, when missionary work returned in full in the mid-1960s. Italy's first congregation was organized a short time later. Formal legal status in the country was realized in 1993, allowing the Church to own property and have other privileges essential to its growth here.
Members here are proud of that past. They know about the Italian missionary efforts of Peter's and Paul's latter-day apostolic colleague, Elder Lorenzo Snow, and his companions, who arrived in Italy in 1850 in the country's Piedmont Valley.
