Wall of Kindness in Rome

Rome’s first Wall of Kindness designed to help the less fortunate.

Students from Rome's Marymount International School are creating a “Wall of Kindness”, where visitors can donate clothes to the less fortunate, on Saturday 19 March from 10.00-13.00, on Via Cassia 1761 in the La Storta area north of the capital.

The project by the ninth grade students, which is supported by local city authorities, was inspired by the recent Walls of Kindness that appeared across Iran. 

The Rome version of the community-welfare initiative follows the same principle: “Leave what you do not need, and take what you need”, a message which will also appear on the mural decorating the wall.

The event is open to all and encourages people to show kindness to strangers in need. Visitors are invited to donate coats and other items of clothing no longer in use by hanging them onto the hooks on the wall.

Children attending the inauguration will also have the chance to leave a hand print on the Wall of Kindness.
