The drop which was made to overflow the vase

The episode that induced the cottolengo to move from preaching to acting on the ground was the encounter with the dramatic death of a sick and pregnant young woman, called Giovanna Maria Gonnet, who had not been accepted by the city hospitals. It was 1824.

The photo shows an estract of the film "Una cosa in mente", which talk about Cottolengo's life.
