Mouvement pour la Lutte contre la Faim dans le Monde / Movimiento Per la Lotta contro la Fame del Mundo
1964. The economic boom. Italy was growing out of post-war poverty when the Movement for the Fight against Hunger in the World (MLFM) was born in Lodi. The president of Catholic Action, Arnaldo Moretti, flanked by Antonio Allegri and Angelo Cambiè, gathered a tight group of collaborators and started developing projects together with the Mani Tese association in Milan, which supported the Pime (Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions) missionaries in poverty-stricken locations. The head office was initially located in the diocesan administration of Lodi, but the next year it was moved to 73 Via Cavour. Right from the start, the decision to have an autonomous space served a specific purpose: to mark the independence of the Movement from the diocesan missionary work affiliated with the Church.
