Fr. Paul Albera was an eyewitness of the tumultuous transition from the 19th to the 20th century. It was a delicate time for the congregation, the Church and the whole world, culminating in one of the most devestating events in contemporary history: the Great War. This exhibit revisits the life journey of this humble Salesian through his own eyes. Let us enter the world of the “Little Don Bosco”, a silent pioneer whose probing insights and courageous actions shaped the Salesian Congregation as we know it today.
