The theme of the 2021 campaign is #OrangeTheWorld.
Orange is the color to represent
a brighter future free from violence against women and girls, if you want you can share the gif or a personal picture of yourself with this color.

All very nice, but ten years have passed since Europe adopted the Istanbul Convention and in essence the situation is only getting worse.

The number of victims is terrifying, just as following the cases in the daily news leaves us stricken in the face of stories from which, to say the least, hallucinating circumstances emerge.

This is why I find it important to spread the number 1522 to contact the anti-violence line and I liked the idea of some stores to add it to the receipt, bags etc.

In case it is not possible to call, you can start a chat directly from the site

There are also many local associations that are a valid and efficient aid in the area.

The point where the mechanism jams is another and responds to the sad refrain “the laws are there, the difficult thing is to apply them.”

So I would say that since in recent days it has been amply demonstrated that, when the state really wants, in real time it carries out its intent, it would really be the case not to use two weights and two measures.

As my son’s teacher says “there are sons and stepchildren” or stepdaughters in this case, because we are all the same but some keep being more equal.

JEWISH PRESENCES IN VIGEVANO IN REMOTE AND RECENT HISTORY

JEWISH PRESENCES IN VIGEVANO IN REMOTE AND RECENT HISTORY

 

Sunday the 4th of July in the beautiful setting in the courtyard of Palazzo Merula in Vigevano  where, among other things, there is the municipal historical archive, Ermanno Boccalaris book was presented: Jewish presence in Vigevano in remote and recent history part of a special series “Leading roles” edited by Astrolabio and Punto & Virgola

The author has carried out a precise and meticulous research which reveals the first testimonies of Jewish bankers in 1400 during the period of the Visconti Sforza duchy and which embraces all types sector.

We were therefore able to hear stories of doctors as well as architects, and for example we learned that the first recipe of a typical local product actually comes from a kosher preparation.

The all-round excursus also included the seventh art: with a quote dedicated to Il maestro di Vigevano by Elio Petri, as regards the wife of the master played by Alberto Sordi, or actress Claire Bloom.

Wikipedia gives us an image with a cup of coffee on the table of one of the Cafe in Piazza Ducale.

Speaking of Piazza Ducale: have you ever noticed the star of David on the cobblestones in front of the Cathedral?
