Rome installation highlights violence against women

Installation in central Rome represents female victims of violence.

100 white silhouettes have been installed in Rome's Piazza S. Marco, just off Piazza Venezia in the city centre, to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on 25 November.
Entitled Senza Parole (Without Words), the installation's statues represent women who have been murdered, and each figure has a personal story attached. 
The installation has been organised by Italian trade union UGL whose secretary Ornello Petillo says: "We have no more words in the face of such a tragedy." 
The Non Una di Meno (Not One Less) rally, designed to recall the victims of feminicide and male aggression as well as demanding greater rights for women, will begin in Piazza della Repubblica at 14.00 on 25 November.
