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.


Devotio’s program aims to promote the cultural exchange through professionals and priests’ point of views and experiences.

THE FIVE SENSES IN LITURGY this is the main topic of DEVOTIO, focusing on what the Second Vatican Council identifies as Church’s peak and source of action. In the earthly liturgy, thanks to the five senses, the Church takes part in the liturgy celebrated in heaven as reported by the Roman Missal.
