In Love with a Nun

A man whose girlfriend left him to become a nun a month ago has been rebuffed by the convent where she is staying. The man travelled from the two 20-year-olds' hometown of Alassio on the Ligurian Riviera to the convent near Montecassino. When his ex-girlfriend refused to see him he put up a placard on the convent walls reading: ''I didn't want to take you away, just talk to you, because I love you''.

The nuns immediately took the placard down but the man has said he will do ''whatever it takes'' to get her back, boosted by local villagers who are all said to be rooting for him.
