Rome residents join blitz to clean up the city

Roma Cura Roma aims to clean up Rome thanks to volunteers with civic spirit.

Rome residents will join forces with around 400 associations and clubs to help the municipal rubbish collection agency AMA Roma clean up the city on Saturday 11 May.

The third edition of the Roma Cura Roma (Rome takes care of Rome) initiative will see teams of people tackle hundreds of clean-up projects in streets, squares and green areas across the capital.

Participants in the blitz include Retake Roma, representatives from football clubs AS Roma and SS Lazio, schools, charities, environmental groups and dozens of neighbourhood committees.

AMA will provide the volunteers with brooms, bags and gloves and will remove the trash that is collected over the course of the day.

Among those rolling up their sleeves on Saturday will be the city's mayor Roberto Gualtieri who hailed the project as "an opportunity to experience our public spaces, streets and parks together".
