Michael L. Pomo – “Giulia Falletti Di Barolo: impelled by Christ’s love” in “Journal of Salesian Studies”

This is the story of a woman; a woman that commands our attention; a woman of extraordinary character, virtue and holiness; a woman of exquisite personal sensitivity.

The Marchioness Giulia Barolo was a very energetic social reformer of her day. In some respects, she could be compared to Dorothy Day of the twentieth century. Her appearance on the Piedmontese scene was both timely and ahead of her time. The Marchioness was very well read, and when she did something it was “state of the art” or a futuristic, pioneering innovation based on solid data.
