APR. 27. ROME(SAR NEWS)– St. Dominic Savio`s portrait, which charmed millions of young people all over the world, was not of the saint but of a 13-year-old Italian lad who is now a retired professor at the Salesian University (UPS), Rome. Ubaldo Gianetto selected to model Dominic was then a student at St. John the Evangelist Salesian Institute Turin when a new portrait was commissioned to mark Dominic Savio`s beatification and impending birth centenary (1842 to 1942). St. Dominic Savio`s feast is celebrated on May 6.
