The inventory of the “Personal Correspondence 1946-1959” series of the Luigi Sturzo Fund has been completed

In the context of the archival work in progress on the Luigi Sturzo collection, the Historical Archive concluded the work of inventorying the “Personal Correspondence 1946-1959” series relating to the years since Sturzo’s return from exile to his death.

These are about 4,500 documents described analytically and divided into 72 files, for a total of 2,080 interlocutors who testify a part of the intense correspondence exchanged by Sturzo even in the last phase of his life.

To facilitate the search, 47 pages of onomastic and toponymic indexes were also compiled, as well as a specific list of the 200 bodies mentioned.

The documentation, together with the paper inventory, is available for on-site consultation by anyone who wants to request it.
