A Warm Welcome to the Archive “P. Francesco S.M. D’Aria SJ”

We are happy to announce the accession of the Archive “P. Francesco S.M. D’Aria SJ” to the ICARUS-network!

The young archive (est. 2018)  hosts the written legacy of its founder P. Francesco Saverio Maria D’Aria (1889-1976), documenting the activities of the Order “Le Ausiliare della Madonna” on the peninsula Sorretina (Sant’Agata sui due golfi) near Naples, maintaining a foster home for war orphans of the second world war. The contents of the archives are a highly valuable source for the civic and socio-religious history of Naples.
