Fifteen years later, the principles that had been established at the time proved their permanent validity and the site, known as the Salesian Digital Library - or SDL - was recently relaunched, thanks to work that renewed the site's visual presentation, updated the underlying software and significantly expanded the contents: currently there are over 200,000 resources, in a broad sense, but their number is potentially infinite!

    (ANS - Sesto San Giovanni) - As usual, in view of the Feast Day of Don Bosco, the “Don Bosco” Social Works of Sesto San Giovanni are promoting a high-level educational conference.

Title of this seventh edition of the conference - which this year will not be in attendance, but in live streaming - is in fact: “Educating… A choice that is a sign and bearer of hope”. Leading the work sessions, on January 20, from 14:30 to 17:00 (UTC + 1), will be Fr Fabio Attard.
