Study conference to mark the 450th anniversary of the death of Pope San Pio V

25 November 2022

On the 450th anniversary of the death of Pope San Pio V (1572-2022), the Diocese of Alessandria, the Province of Alessandria, the Municipality of Alessandria and the Municipality of Bosco Marengo, with the fundamental support of Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Alessandria, has set up a committee for the celebrations.

The recurrence is of great interest to our territory: Pio V is the only Pope of Piedmont origin, and his figure is one of the most significant of the modern era.

The intent of the events, which will continue throughout 2022, is also to modernise the figure of Michele Ghislieri with positive effects on local tourism and culture.

One of the key events of the celebrations will be on 15 and 22 October next with an international studies conference in Bosco Marengo (15 October) and another in Alessandria (22 October).
