Abstract

The early 20th century identity of the Milanese parish recreational centres for the youth was shaped by reflecting on existing precepts of the Ambrosian tradition – whose roots lay in the Borromaic Schools of Christian Doctrine – interpreted in the light of the insights from the national youth recreational centres movement, and in particular the experiences of the Oratorians and the Salesians. In 1904 Cardinal Ferrari issued the new “Statuto” (Statute on Parish Recreational Centres) aimed at reforming existing Milanese oratori while providing pastoral guidelines that may tackle the changed social conditions brought about by the process of industrialization in the Milanese area. The new model of parish recreational centres for the youth characterized Ambrosian pastoral activity for many years, and spread as one of the most widely adopted educative structures not only in the Milanese area but also throughout Lombardy. The adjustments brought to the Statute by the Oratorian Congresses at Monza (1907) and Milan (1909) consolidated the identity of the parish recreational centres for the youth while simultaneously promoting the inclusion of modern formative notions into their pedagogical horizons.
