Italy 19 March: Marzabotto - Mantova
Traversing the "Pianura Padana"
We meet the runners from the UISP running club. We actually had appointment in a square, outside, but given the weather we opted to meet in the Andy Taylor bar, which turned out to be quite enthusiastic about the Peace Run, so we took the chance for our first group shot together with the staff from the bar.
They underlined the importance of working for peace, because it is in their experience how painful and difficult it is to restore peace once it is destroyed.
Assessore Giulio Guerzoni, the sport deputy mayor, welcomed us and spoke very supportive words for peace and its initiatives.
The Deputy Mayor for Sport presented us with medals from the city, as a thank you for the inspirational activity of the Peace Run
A beautiful gift from the students. They worked hard to produce beautiful artworks on the theme of peace.
Fast forward to Mantova, in the City Hall, the Deputy Mayor for Sport, Paola Nobis, welcomed us with kind words of support.
