Pasquale Foresi (1929-2015) was the first co-president of the Focolare Movement – Work of Mary. With his rich personality, he accompanied foundress Chiara Lubich and played a fundamental role in enabling the charism of unity to fully express itself. The remarkable and in many ways paradigmatic unity between Chiara Lubich and Pasquale Foresi allowed some essential aspects of the doctrine and culture of the budding Movement to emerge and take shape, including the Movement’s regulations, educational structures and publishing activity.

“A life rooted in wisdom” – those were the words used by Giuseppe Maria Zanghì to describe Pasquale Foresi’s existence, which laid the foundations for both the Abba School and the Sophia University Institute.
