Assisi website brings out the poet in actor Roberto Benigni

Roberto Benigni, who won an Oscar for the film "Life Is Beautiful," has written a poem on peace for the official Web site of the Basilica and Sacred Convent of St. Francis of Assisi. Like hundreds of others, the comedian and film director responded to the initiative launched on the Internet site of the Conventual Friars ( here ), by sending "an e-mail message of peace," said Father Enzo Fortunato, director of the convent's press office. When he opened his e-mail messages on Wednesday, Father Fortunato was surprised to find a poem sent by Benigni himself.
