The Exhibition
The Sailing Ship of Narnia, inspired by one of the seven books of the Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis. The exhibition tells the journey to discover the purpose of their lives, of all the protagonists of the story, through the adventures of their company of friends. Within the story we will see the growth of each character in relationship with Aslan, the lion, and it will be the latter to combine the experience of all. As it turns out, the personal path is interdependent with everyone's path, because everyone's way is relationship with the world.

The exhibition-show
Light, cross, voice and ... walnut - The adventurous life of St. Anthony of Padua - by Father Marco Finco.
With Father Marco Finco, Pietro Grava and the collaboration of students of the Catholic University of Milan.
The life of Saint Anthony makes raises a big question: what does man really need? The journeys of his life clarify the fact that man, even in absolute good will, is not able to answer this great question on his own. To really move one's own history, and consequently the history of the whole world, one must let himself be helped by others. The route of the exhibition-show is intended to make known the history of this great saint, highlighting the starting point of the same Antonio (then Fernando): "What is happiness?". The visitors, accompanied through eight small places, will meet Antonio's human and Christian experience.
