Hopscotch on Rome streets

Garbatella kids play hopscotch on the way to school in Rome.

The streets of Garbatella have been decorated with games of hopscotch, known in Italian as il gioco della campana, thanks to an initiative by the local council.

Titled Vado a Scuola Giocando, the project has seen 31 hopscotch patterns stencilled onto streets near schools in the Garbatella district.

The initiative, aimed at the area's youngest school children, precedes World Play Day on 28 May and comes ahead of Garbatella's centenary next February.
