The particular project the Templar Order is involved with is called the "Teko Guaraní Project", and members of the Order initiated this project with a large convention which met in the convent of San Salvatore al Monte in the Summer of 2003, as recorded in Il Notiziario, the newsletter of Italy's National Association of Sociologists (ANS).
According to Nomenclatura templare (Templar Nomenclature), the primary function of the Grand Preceptor of a Templar Order is to inform new members of the Gran Priory in the manner of rituals, rules, and behaviours.
Also, as the Grand Preceptor of the Overseas Priorate of the Order he is responsible for overseas, or out-of-Italy affairs.
Lastly, the Grand Preceptor, besides his member-creating function, is also involved in the education of members.
HM Most Rev Dr Cesidio Tallini said, of the new position “I intend to take on this official function as soon as possible, and within the limits of my free time. After creating a basic Web site for the Order on 20 March 2007, and after receiving some inspiration from HRH Giancarlo Ezio I, Sovereign of "Santa Maria la Redonda", and Chancellor of the Order, I did some research about a special theme in the history of the Knights Templar.
I can now present the extremely interesting results of my research here at the bottom with the article, "The Legacy of the Knights Templar". Hope you find the article interesting, and that it will motivate you to join the Order. “
