International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women
With a red bench and a football match, Sirmione adheres to the recurrence
On the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, which is celebrated every year on November 25, for the third consecutive year the Municipality of Sirmione, on the proposal of the Commissione Servizi alla Persona and in a network with the anti-violence centers of the province of Brescia, has created another red bench, this time in the historic center at the park dedicated to Don Lino Zorzi, to expand the awareness points in the Sirmione area and increase the culture of respect and contrast to violence.
In recent years, the following had already been inaugurated:
- in 2020 the first red bench was placed at the church of Colombare di Sirmione
- in 2021 the red grandstand was built at the municipal sports field with a symbolic sentence in the center: “the battle against violence against women starts with me!”
Also on the proposal of the Commission, it was organized, at the Municipal Sports Center of Lugana, at 6.45 pm, a charity football match between municipal employees and law enforcement officers against the Barbuti national team and their companions. This experience also aims to break down the barriers of difference and promote a culture of mutual respect.
