Celebrated Roman street artist Alice Pasquini has created a new mural at Rome's Testaccio market depicting the love between two women.

Pasquini's work was part of events for World Day of Kindness which takes place on 13 November and whose message is one of togetherness and integration.

The mural was also posted under the hashtag #KindComments, a recent initiative by the Instagram social network to promote positivity and help prevent offensive behaviour by so-called trolls.
