Solferino 2022 represents our history that comes alive once more, now that it’s finally possible to be together again. If we can do that, it is also thanks to the efforts and the extraordinary contribution of the many volunteers. With the traditional torchlight march from Piazza Castello in Solferino, on June 25th, we will celebrate the spirit of the Red Cross and Red Crescent and the people who embodied it.
TAKE PART IN THE EVENT!
Register: we will give you the torch to bring back home the souvenir of this special edition of Solferino 2022 in which all together we will relive our history.
Starting from 25 June, it will be possible to visit the photographic exhibition “A History of Humanity” in the indoor halls of the International Red Cross Museum as well as in Piazza S. Luigi in Castiglione delle Stiviere, A journey made of images which trace the Red Cross’ response to modern emergencies with works by Paolo Pellegrin (Magnum Photos), Fabio Bucciarelli (New York Times), Stefano Schirato (Vanity Fair), Yara Nardi (Reuters).
From 25 June to 24 September, the International Museum of the Red Cross will be the site of the Festival “A History of Humanity”, a series of events dedicated to the publishing industry and music, with the participation of leading figures in the world of culture and entertainment such as Eugenio Finardi, Paolo Roversi, Franco Gabrielli and Enzo Iacchetti, among others. The world of culture pays tribute to a human endeavor, the greatest one, that originated from the idea of one man, Henry Dunant, which later became reality: a community on the move supporting those who suffer.
