The Foundation has created and cataloged an archive of the material collected by Don Luigi during his life from 1940 to 1997.
The Archive has been declared to be “of considerable historical interest due to the importance it has for the social and cultural history of the 1900’s” by the Lazio Archival Superintendence.
An important event in which Monsignor Di Liegro played a major role was the conference held in February 1974 on the “Responsibilities of Christians amid the expectations of charity and justice in the Diocese of Rome“, which went down in history as “the conference on the evils of Rome“.
The cataloged material concerns all of the great ecclesial and social issues that concern the city and the country as a whole: the territorial and pastoral reorganization of the Diocese of Rome, administrative decentralization, housing problems, health, family, immigration, minors, drug addiction, and usury. Notes and press reviews were stored on these topics, as well as legislative interventions, conferences and correspondence. There is a particularlysignificant amount of documentation on the beginning of services of the Diocesan Caritas in Rome.
The archive also contains documents and press reviews from countries such as Belgium and France – which Don Di Liegro always considered as an example in terms of social and pastoral phenomena – Albania and other developing countries around the world in which the priest initiated significant projects to help rebuild the social fabric.
The archive is composed of six sections:
- paper documents
- a library
- photographic material
- audio material
- video material
The material was digitally organized and cataloged, in order to make it accessible to both the public in general and to the Foundation, whose study and research was already underway.
