About Devotio Lab
An exhibition dedicated to religious products and services is the perfect occasion to study the Catholic Church main topics from a cultural point of view. Dealing with important and sensitive topics is not easy; for this reason DEVOTIO is supported by a scientific committee whose members are experts in this field.
DEVOTIO was born with the aim to contribute to the cultural growth of the religious industry and, as for the first edition, a cultural program has been created to focus on art, management of sacred architecture, liturgy and catechesis.
CULTURAL AIMSDevotio’s program aims to promote the cultural exchange through professionals and priests’ point of views and experiences.
