Italy – Available online all issues of magazine "VOCI FRATERNE"

19 January 2023

(ANS - Rome) - Just a few days before the feast day of Don Bosco, the more than 100-year-old magazine "VOCI FRATERNE," the official organ of the Italian Federation of Past Pupils of Don Bosco, shares with satisfaction an important milestone reached, as well as useful information for all those who love Don Bosco and his work: all the published issues of the magazine are now available online.

The magazine "VOCI FRATERNE" was first published on June 29, 1920, and since then and up to the present has given to print nearly 1,000 issues, with more than 23,000 pages full of Salesian life. This provident example of "good press" constitutes a cultural heritage not only for this Association, but for the entire Salesian, ecclesial and civil world of the nation.

A laborious work of digitization has been completed in recent years and now the cataloging work has been completed.

From today, through the website, upon simple creation of one's own account, all interested parties will be able to read the contents of all issues of the magazine from 1920 to the present, including the first attempts in 1911 and 1913.

"It is a first goal painstakingly achieved," said the National President of the Italian Federation of Past Pupils of Don Bosco, Giovanni Costanza, "but an intermediate and not a final goal. As of today, possible solutions are already being studied that will make it easier for our readers to search by offering the possibility of indexed searches. Of course, it will take time and work, but I am confident that we will find ways to give greater consistency to the sharing of this heritage that begins today."
