Italy - Don Bosco's "chair", the place of "good nights"
Turin, Italy - 1848 - According to tradition, Mamma Margherita started the practice of leaving a message to the children before they went to sleep. But it was then Don Bosco who gave a short speech to his boys every day, which in time took the name of "Good Night". Don Bosco began this custom in 1848: "From that moment on, I began to give them a small sermon after the prayers of the evening," he narrates. If this "chair" could bring back all the good stories of Don Bosco, we would be able to relive the charism of the Saint in his original version.
