Elsa Victoria Gonzalez,Liliana Edith Delgado,Torrens Vicente Martínez – El museo salesiano de Fortín Mercedes – Argentina

La prima parte della nota si sofferma sull’origine militare del Forte, sulla storia di quello che sarebbe diventato il santuario di Maria Ausiliatrice e sullo sviluppo dell’opera salesiana locale, compresa la fondazione del “Museo Regional y Misionero D. José Luro”, che darà poi origine all’attuale Museo, recentemente voluto e inaugurato dal Rettor Maggiore, don Juan Edmundo Vecchi, figlio della Patagonia e ex allievo della stessa casa di Fortín Mercedes. La seconda parte presenta il Museo stesso nella sua progettazione ideale, nella realtà delle sale espositive e dei materiali in esse conservati, nelle opportunità continuamente offerte ai visitatori.

Antonio Ferreira da Silva – Patagonia: I- Realtà e mito nell’azione missionaria salesiana – Il vicariato apostolico della Patagonia Settentrionale

Dalla corrispondenza di mons. Cagliero, mons. Lasagna, don Vespignani e altri, si costata una voglia di autonomia dalle curie diocesane riguardo sia alla vita delle comunità religiose che al loro apostolato. Non solo le esperienze avute a Montevideo, a San Paolo del Brasile, a Cuiabá, a La Plata, ad Ancud generavano un tale sentimento; provenienti essi da Valdocco, portavano inciso nell’animo il ricordo dei difficili rapporti tra don Bosco e la curia torinese.

Amongst the documents drawn up by the third (1883) and fourth (1886) General Chapter of the Salesian Congregation – which the founder also took part in – of particular merit is the new Regulations for the festive oratories and deliberations regarding Orientations for the working boys in Salesian houses.

Giovanni Bosco – First salesian colleges founded outside Turin (1863-1864)

“One and not the last study by Don Bosco this year,” writes J. B. Lemoyne referring to 1863 “was the foundation of the college at Mirabello. He had written up its regulations, using the ones at the Oratory as a basis, specifying all the duties of individual superiors and of the pupils, changing what might not be appropriate for the nature of this Institute.” These “regulations,” that remained simply handwritten for many years, according to what we have from Lemoyne, “had to be the founding statute for all the other Houses that would be opened over time. This meant they were given much importance.”

Arthur Lenti – Don Bosco’s love affair with “poor and abandoned” young people and the beginnings of the oratory

The present study aims, not at any new interpretation, but simply at describing some aspects of the actual circumstances of the origins on the basis of fresh documentation now available. In particular, restricting the field of inquiry, I will focus on the young people who were protagonists in Don Bosco’s work at its origin.
