New translation of the Missal

Is it me, or is there something strange about the New missal being printed in Trent ? 

"Here at CTS, two of our staff have made the trip to Italy to supervise the printing of the New Missal.

Pierpaolo Finaldi, Roman Missal Project Editor and Glenda Swain, designer were in Italy at the beginning of this week to sign off the pages of the Roman Missal altar edition at the state of the art factory where the books are being printed and bound.

Mr Finaldi commented: “Interestingly the Missal is being printed Trento in the shadow of the alps in Northern Italy, a place of great significance for the Church and the development of the Mass. So 441 years after the Missale Romanum was promulgated by the Council of Trent we were back in Trent printing the very latest version.

“It’s great to see cutting edge modern print technology at the service of God and of these prayers whose origins go all the way back to Jesus. I also can’t help feeling that it is significant that the book has been printed during Holy Week.”

“The book is looking really beautiful and I am sure that this will go a long way to ensuring a positive reception in the Autumn.”
