SAN DOMENICO CENTRE
2020 CONTRIBUTION: 5,000 euro
Patronage of Catholic cultural activities
The San Domenico Centre was set up in Bologna in 1970 thanks the initiative of founder Fra Michele Casali. The centre is a Catholic non-profit association which, by means of conferences, debates, symposia, seminars and other forms of cultural communication, aims to spread the principles of the Catholic faith and address ethical, philosophical, religious, artistic and topical matters; all themes addressed with a continuous discussion between ideas, constantly focusing on matters that bring people together rather than those that set them apart. The words of Pope John Paul II, which he expressed on the foundation’s tenth anniversary, describe the spirit of the San Domenico centre in full: “A provident cultural association, a living presence and Christian witness in the city and diocese of Bologna, worthy of praise and open to other voices in a spirit of collective dialogue”.
