In Memory of Fr. Giussani


As Father Giussani leaves everything to us, in the same way we leave everything to him; thus, please contact the CL Archive if you want to deliver to the Historical Archive writings, pictures, audio and video recordings regarding meetings with Father Giussani in order to increase what he left us.”
(J. Carrón, Fraternity Exercises 2005).
In particular, it is more and more evident how valuable and meaningful it is to collect all the documents regarding Father Giussani, such as:
- Notes and letters, written or signed in his own handwriting;
- Texts (booklets, photocopies) of his speech at conferences, meetings, and assemblies;
- Audio and video recordings;
- Pictures.
The original documents or copies can be mailed to the Historical Archive, or scanned copies can be emailed; they will be kept carefully and confidentially.
