On May 19, on Pentecost Sunday, Past Pupil Francesco Serra took various photographs. One still survives today: the famous image known as "Don Bosco among the young".
Francesco Serra was a young enthusiast of new portrait techniques and made various studies with light and shadow with his camera.
Many believe that it's a daguerreotype, but it's acually a photograph made with more modern techniques.
Although it is not a clear image, it is a precious testimony of Don Bosco's love for his children.
