Americans and Italians in Rome stand up for equality on 20 January.
The Women's March Rome, designed to show solidarity for the protection of civil and social rights, women's rights and the environment, will take place at Piazza SS. Apostoli from 11.00 to 13.00 on Saturday 20 January.
Speakers include Asia Argento, the actress/director and activist; Lella Paladino of D.i.Re; Dinsio Walo-Wright, a refugee rights activist; and Loretta Bondi of Casa Internazionale Delle Donne.
The event marks the first anniversary of the Women's March Rome which was part of a global grassroots reaction in protest over the policies of the Trump administration in the US.
The march is organised by individual Americans living in Rome and will see the participation of several organisations of Americans in Italy as well as Italian and international groups.
