In these challenging months, the Servas Italian Board and the Servas Youth Group friends are working to create links and spaces for dialogue, to share many small ideas and actions.
Despite the difficulties,and respecting the current restrictions, on October 9-10-11 Servas Italy held the annual Assembly in Assisi (Perugia), participating in the Peace March. The Peace March is held each two years in Assisi, the historical town of Francesco, patron saint of Italy and symbol of Peace. The March is promoted by a Committee (“Tavola della Pace”) of many associations and groups active on Peace topic. Servas Italy joined this Committee last year and prepared with others the event.
Usually the Peace March is a walk from Perugia to Assisi but this year due to Covid-restriction it was a “Human-chain” 25 km long, where people were standing, holding a rope and flags, connecting the two towns.
Over 40 people from Servas Italy contributed to the construction of the Human Chain that reached Perugia from Assisi. It was an important step. It wasn't easy to observe restrictions and distances.
