Childhood And Adolescence

Now in the first display cases you can see some objects that tell of the first stages of Francesca's life. She was born in Sant'Angelo Lodigiano on July 15, 1850 and grew up in a family atmosphere of intense religious devotion. They are marked by the phases that characterized the traditional, mid-nineteenth century training of a young Catholic girl, both from a cultural and religious point of view, as evidenced on the one hand, in "The Book of adolescence" and the picture with her school grades, and on the other, the medal of the Holy Sacrament of Confirmation and the medal belonging to the "Congregation of the Daughters of Mary" (which promoted devotion to Virgin Mary and Christian education connected with apostolic and social services to female youth). In the next display case you can see the embroideries made by Francesca at a young age.
