The Congregation of the Institute Madri Pie di Nostra Signora della Sapienza was founded by Abbot Paolo Gerolamo Franzoni (1708-1778) in Genoa Sampierdarena in 1753, with the aim of educating the youth of all social backgrounds. In fact, we carry out our educational activities in schools, churchhalls, oratories and hostels.

Of particularvalue are the activities of the Congregation in the Mission in Peru.

Abbot Franzoni named us MOTHERS to stress the importance of our educational mission and PIE, meaning charitable, to underline the holiness each of us is called to achieve.
