With this release we want to make public the official references concerning Blessed Chiara Badano.
The Chiara Badano Foundation and the Actor of the Cause Monsignor Luigi Testore, bishop of the Diocese of Acqui, are the ones who in full unity carry out an active collaboration, for every aspect that concerns the Cause.
The previous Postulation has ended, and we are awaiting a new appointment to continue Chiara’s canonization. Therefore, the names and references of the previous Postulation no longer have authority and charge for anything that concerns Chiara Badano.
If you are aware of a presumed miracle or a grace received, you must send your testimony and any documentation directly to the BISHOP’S CURIA, Piazza Duomo, 9 – 15011 Acqui Terme (AL) – Ph.: +39.0144.322.078 to the bishop’s attention.
In unison we ask that reference be made to the Foundation for every request, information, and news, and that www.chiarabadano.org be used as Chiara’s official website.
We beseech you, friends of Chiara, to spread as much as possible what the website proposes, to allow many people to become close to and inspired by the life of Chiara, as well as be informed about proposals and projects that are gathered here.
The desire is also to clarify and have transparency in all areas, to facilitate an official and authoritative direct reference, also from a legal standpoint. For the use of photos, and Chiara’s material, we expressly ask that you request written authorization from the Foundation. No marketing in Chiara’s name is authorized. Those who collect money for social projects must obtain written consent. Every important request will be made known to the bishop.

FAQAnswers to frequently asked questions
At this time, the Foundation is working on the creation of a permanent Chiara Badano museum exhibition to be realized in Sassello. It is already in the advanced stages and will become one of the privileged opportunities to raise awareness of Chiara to anyone who wants to get to know her. One may request that the contents and organization of this multimedia exhibition of Chiara Badano be reproduced abroad in abbreviated format. We ask that all requests be sent to the Foundation, which will provide information and support the implementation.

Obviously you can do this yourself at any time (remember that winter weather conditions are not always optimal). Especially in the case of groups and parties is advisable to use the appropriate form on this site, specifying the period chosen, the number and types of people expected, and mode of arrival and stay. This is so that those who wish may have, through the Foundation and the Sassello parish, not only a fitting welcome, but also the opportunity to meet witnesses related to Chiara and her experience, but also receive useful logistical information (meals, overnight accommodation, directions to the symbolic places of Chiara’s life). For those who wish to attend a Holy Mass in the Chiara’s parish (Church of the “Holy Trinity”) all information can be found at www.parrocchiasassello.it.
We never asked for a financial contribution to manage the reception of groups welcomed by witnesses, but now in accordance with Bishop and the Sassello parish priest, we ask that each group provide a contribution to cover the costs of transportation that witnesses will have to face to reach Sassello. Any surplus, according to Bishop and the Sassello parish priest, will be saved in a Fund to be used for the construction of a permanent multimedia exhibition that will be realized in Sassello. Of course, all this will be ascertained with complete transparency in the Foundation’ budget.
