The evening ended with refreshments in the cloister of the Canepanova Convent, where participants had the opportunity to share moments of fraternity and reflection, recalling the life and work of Father Costantino Ruggeri.

His artistic legacy, exhibited in numerous churches and public spaces in Italy and abroad, continues to inspire and nourish the souls of many.
