[BT] Eusebio Chini
 


ITALIANO

Eusebio Francesco Chini (Segno (Comune di Taio in Val di Non), 10 agosto 1644 – Magdalena de Kino, 15 marzo 1711) è stato un religioso, missionario, geografo nonché esploratore, cartografo e astronomo italiano. È noto nell'attuale Messico nordoccidentale e negli Stati Uniti sudoccidentali soprattutto per i metodi che utilizzò per evangelizzare e convertire al Cristianesimo le popolazioni native americane. Egli istituì più di 20 missioni e visitas ("parrocchie di campagna"), ed è noto per la sua abilità nel creare un rapporto fra i popoli indigeni e le istituzioni religiose che rappresentava.
Percorrendo la strada statale della Valle di Non è possibile notare l’imponente statua bronzea inaugurata il 27 luglio 2008 in onore di Padre Eusebio Chini (Kino). Da visitare, inoltre, anche il museo a lui dedicato nel centro del paese, con una pregevole statua equestre di Padre Eusebio Francesco Chini (Kino).

Non dimenticarsi di portare la penna!

Eusebio Francisco Kino S.J. (Segno (Municipality of Taio, Val di Non) August 10, 1644– Magdalena de Kino March 15, 1711) was a Catholic priest who became famous in what is now northwestern Mexico and the southwestern United States (primarily Sonora and Arizona) for his exploration of the region and for his work to Christianize the indigenous Native American population, including primarily the Sobaipuri and other Upper Piman groups. He proved that Baja California is not an island by leading an overland expedition there from Arizona. He established 24missions and visitas ("country chapels"), and was known for his ability to create relationships between indigenous peoples and the religious institutions he represented.
Driving along the highway of Valle di Non, you can easily notice the impressive bronze statue which was unveiled on July 27, 2008 in order to honour Father Eusebio Francisco Kino. In the centre of Segno you can also visit the museum dedicated to Father Eusebio Francisco Kino.
