Italian Province

The Italian Province was erected in 1989 and is based at the Mother House of the Institute at Piacenza. The same house was the seat of the Superior General and Council from the time of its foundation, in 1649, and up the year 1993, when the Generalate was transferred to Rome. It has witnessed 3 centuries of the dedicated service our Sisters rendered to the local people and to the Church of Piacenza, especially through the apostolate of education.
