In the footsteps of St. Eugene de Mazenod in Palermo

Mediterranean Province

Video by Vincenzo David and Fr. Maurizio Vella

St. Eugene de Mazenod, in his exile in Italy, spent almost four years in Palermo, from 1799 to 1802.

So many places in this city still speak of him.

Since 2014, on the initiative of Vincenzo David, Ileana Chinnici and other lay people who share the oblate charism, the tour “On the steps of St. Eugene in Palermo” was born with the aim of showing the places frequented by Eugene more than 200 years ago.

Now this video is born, made by Vincenzo David and Fr. Maurizio Vella, which does not pretend to be exhaustive about young Eugene’s experience but only wishes to evoke his presence, offering flashes of a city to be discovered.
