The winners of the Murales competition “Even the walls say so” have been decided. The award ceremony on November 25th
The strength of Images, of the drawing. Many times stronger than words. It was decided to focus on this means of communication to convey a message against gender-based violence and promote equality and equal rights. The children and young people of San Marino, from kindergartens to universities, were involved in the project “Even the walls speak”: a competition in which they were asked to illustrate precisely these themes. Today the commission met to select the nine winning designs – there will be at least one prize for each school grade – but the names will only be discovered at the time of the awards ceremony, November 25: Day against violence against women. Selected illustrations will come turn into murals in the Castles of the territory.
“There was a great participation – he says Luigi Guerra, director of the UniRsm Human Sciences Department -. There is a rich range of work. It is important that young people talk about these issues in the classrooms “.
All the works will then be exhibited at the Atlas during the Christmas period and subsequently in the square below. The initiative was launched by the San Marino Workers ‘Union and the San Marino Consumers’ Union, in collaboration with the institutions, the Education Department and the Giunte di Castello, for the spotlight once again on such an important issue and educating the new generations. .
“The culture of respect must be born from childhood to destroy stereotypes and prejudices – he explains Giorgia Giacomini, Secretary General Usl -. Through the acquisition of the concept of equality they can be adults who have this respect “.
“In my opinion these generations are very problematic – he says Francesca Busignani, president of UCS -. Perhaps they were just waiting for the moment to be able to express what they think and involve all citizens on this truly important issue “.
