Catherine and Paul VI in Pavia

The Women's University College St. Catherine of Siena of Pavia has organized for Monday 22 April, a day of study "Papa Montini, Catherine and women” to celebrate its founding by the will of Montini four decades ago. Paul VI, as is known, always gave a great deal of attention to women: In addition to having a privileged relationship with his mother, Giuditta Alghisi, he oversaw universities for Catholic women, he wanted women as listeners in the Second Vatican Council and he nominated St. Catherine of Siena, Doctor of the Church, the first woman to have this title. During the day - moderated by Giulia Galeotti – interventions were made by Elsa Antoniazzis, sister Marcellina, who has studied the figure of the Blessed Sala, the educator of Montini's mother, Adriana Valerio, historian and theologian who addressed the role of women in the council; Lucetta Scaraffia, historian and journalist who has studied the figure of St. Catherine, and Maria Pia Sacchi, the rector of the college who presented the correspondence between Montini and his mother.
