Letters of government, letters of animation, letters of daily affairs, letters of educational formation, letters of congratulations and good wishes, letters of requests for economic aid with relative thanks… in short, a series of letters of various kinds, many of which are unpublished, addressed to every category of people: from the highest civil and religious authorities (emperors, ministers, popes and cardinals) to simple laymen, men, women and young people.  It will be broadcast: https://youtu.be/l6X0wL_LKkM Although elderly and physically almost a “shadow of his former self,” in the three years under consideration Don Bosco continued undaunted to govern and animate the Congregation through his correspondence. He even extended them to new correspondents scattered throughout the world: French, Spanish, Portuguese, Belgian, Polish, English, German, Austrian, Hungarian, Chilean, Argentine, Uruguayan and Brazilian. What emerges is a new face of Don Bosco, in many ways current, which with the nine volumes...

New learning platform takes Don Bosco’s educational mission online 26 April 2021 (ANS – Paris) – In Don Bosco’s time, once a school was founded, the main technological challenge consisted in guaranteeing the quality and distribution of printed material.

To address this challenge, Don Bosco Intuition Entertainers Media, an international NGO, has been commissioned by the province of FRB, headed by provincial, Daniel Federspiel, to develop several digital solutions. Along with their partner Cagliero Creative Solutions, they have developed CaglieroLMS, a learning management system platform specifically designed for state-of-the-art online education. The presentation of this innovative project is scheduled for next May 1st and will see the participation of the General Councilor for Social Communication, Fr Gildásio Mendes.   “Cagliero Creative Solutions” is quickly gaining international recognition having already developed products for various companies and organizations, co-producing products with entities like BoscoSoft and EsaCineTech. CaglieroLMS was designed specifically for the Don Bosco Network of Schools and Technical Centers and is capable of managing a single school or a network of institutions. The platform has the power to take the Don Bosco mission online, giving our...
