Padre Matteo Ricci



For the IV centenary, the Committee has drawn up a programme which aims to promote the image of Father Matteo Ricci by outlining his most defining features. This will be achieved by organizing a series of events of high academic content but which also aim at popularizing this figure . This will not be simply a commemoration but a great cultural exercise demonstrating the present day relevance of Father Ricci's message.
