On 25 February in Rome, at the Complex of San Salvatore in Lauro, the Lazio Delegation solemnly celebrated the closing of the Jubilee on the 450th Anniversary of the foundation of the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus. The ceremony was attended by many Knights and Dames of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy, who together with the President of the Committee of the Dynastic Orders HRH Cav. Gr. Cr. Prince Don Alessandro Jacopo Boncompagni Ludovisi Altemps, the Committee member Gr. Uff. Avv. Gualtiero Ventura and the Delegate for Lazio Comm. Avv. Alfonso Marini Dettina, welcomed the new members of the Dynastic Orders in the monumental Hall of the Pio Sodalizio dei Piceni.
This was followed by a solemn Holy Mass in the adjacent Church of San Salvatore in Lauro, presided over by H.E. Most Rev. Mgr. De Nicolò, Grand Magistral Prior of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy, who in his homily retraced the steps of the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus’ centuries-old journey of faith and charity, exhorting the members present to embrace the spirit of their predecessors, in prayer and charity.
The event ended with a convivial meeting during which the Charity Gala that will be held on Saturday 15 April in Rome was presented. The Gala will take place in the splendid setting of the Casino dell’Aurora Pallavicini, in the presence of HRH Prince Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia.
