Italian town names a street and a bridge after Saint Marcellin Champagnat



50 years of Marist presence in Cesano Maderno

20/09/2017: Italy

A road and a bridge were officially given the name of ‘Saint Marcellin Champagnat’ on Sept. 14 as a gift of the city’s administration to the Institute for 50 years of educational presence in the town of Cesano Maderno just north of Milan, Italy.

A spokesperson of the Brothers underscored that “we are happy with this choice, and now Cesano can include in its toponymy a road dedicated to the Marists, as it already happens in other places around Italy where our congregation works such as Rome, Genoa, Giugliano and Entracque.”

Mayor Maurilio Longhin, former mayor Pietro Luigi Ponti, the Marist school’s vice-president Franca Strada,its principal, Brother Giorgio Banaudi, local authorities and several students and teachers took part.

During his speech, the mayor – a former Marist student himself – underscored that 30 of the town’s mayors had studied at the Marist school in Cesano Maderno.

The bridge, which crosses over the Seveso River, and the street is a tranquil pedestrian area.
