An Exhibition for Angelo Roncalli

10 April 2014
The people of Bergamo here in the Capital are also preparing for the canonization of Pope John, as demonstrated by "L'Eco di Bergamo." The Archconfraternity of the Bergamascans in Rome has organized in its headquarters on via di Pietra 70 an exhibition, entitled "Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli and the Archconfraternity of Bergamascans in Rome," which will remain open throughout the month.

The exhibition is composed of documentation from the historical archive of the Confraternity, that is, images and signed documents that recount the strong connection of Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli with the ancient sodality of Bergamascans in Rome (of which he was a brother as well as wise counselor) and with the Noble Cerasoli College (of which he was a student).

Alongside this exhibition, which may be visited at the old Oratory of the Archconfraternity of Bergamascans in Rome, another event will be added to the program on 28 April (the vigil of the canonization of John XXIII) at the Church of the Archconfraternity of Bergamascans in Piazza Colonna: at 5:30 PM, a reading of some sections of "Journey of a Soul"; at 6 PM, concelebrated Eucharist; at 7 PM, a concert of the Finish choir "Audite," offered to the sodality by the non profit organization "Vivere in musica." The prestigious choral assembly will present the following program, "Hymn to Saint John XXIII - the first world performance - by Daniela and Raffaella Sabatini, "Passacaglia" by Ludovico Roncalli and traditional religious songs by various authors.
