in the park of Villa Pamphilj

The Garden of the Righteous of Humaniti in Rome was born on the occasion of the first Day of the Righteous of the Humanity, on 6 March 2018, when five trees have been dedicated to Salvo D’Acquisto, Irena Sendler, Armin T. Wegner, Etty Hillesum and Hamadi Ben Abdesslem. The Mayor of Rome Virginia Raggi, Gariwo Chairman Gabriele Nissim and the historian Anna Foa inaugurated the Garden, together with Luca Bergamo, Laura Baldassarre, Pinuccia Montanari and Daniele Diaco. 

The project of the Garden of Rome, located in the park of Villa Pamphilij, has been drawn by the Architect Vitaliano Biondi.

The path that carried to the creation of the Garden started on March 2016, during the celebrations of the European Day of the Righteous, with the help of Adei-Wizo and Municipality Rome XII, in order to pass the values of the Righteous people on to the new generations.
