“A great opportunity to party and celebrate the values that inspire our civil society – words of the Deputy Mayor Cristina Giachi – a sober party to remember, after the tragic events of Paris, how important and necessary debate and the meeting between peoples. In this way we want to isolate those who sow hatred and fear, and do not let them have the last word. The city is close to French friends on July 14th and also all other days. “
