Reports of Affiliates and Committees of The World Calendar Association, International, presented at the Ninth Annual Meeting 16 January 1956, reflect the world-wide interest in and need for calendar reform. Published highlights (JCR Vol. 25, Dec. 1955 - Jan. 1956) for ITALY:

Due to considerable bewilderment occasioned in Italy by the replies of the various member countries of the United Nations regarding the proposal to adopt the new calendar, it was decided that before initiating any real activity on behalf of the adoption of The World Calendar, it would be well to await a more favorable time or the commencement of fresh activity or a new policy on the part of The World Calendar Association, International.

SUSTAINED progress toward the international enactment of calendar reform was reported at the Seventh Annual Meeting 15 January 1954 of The World Calendar Association, International, held in the International Building, New York City. Published highlights (JCR Vol. 24, April 1954) for ITALY:

Despite many years of quiescence due to war and postwar difficulties, the Italian National Committee on Calendar Reform still retains its identity under Professor Amedeo Giannini and his son-in-law. The latter finds a special interest in calendar reform because he is a Moslem and understands how important this movement is to the 300,000,000 people who use the lunar calendar of Mohammed. The latest brochure published by the Italian committee is more that a dozen years old, and nothing more recent is available in the Italian language. In English, however, the quarterly issues of the Journal of Calendar Reform have a fairly wide circulation in Italy and are found in all important libraries. Because Italy is not yet a member of the U.N., its favorable attitude toward a revised calendar is not likely to play an important part in current legislative programs.

The Italian committee received a visit in November from Dr. Hashim Amir Ali who was in Rome for a United Nations meeting. He is an educator from Hyderabad, India, and a leading Moslem authority on calendar reform. During his stay in Rome he conferred with India Ambassador, Mr. B. R. Sen, who will probably be in charge of calendar matters for India at the July meeting of the U.N. Economic and Social Council in Geneva.

At the Vatican, calendar reform is being re-examined. According to a statement issued through the Apostolic Delegate in Washington, "the Holy See now has the question under study and will make known its conclusions in the matter at the proper moment."
