The seven princes of the Red Cross traveling to Italy
On the morning of Friday 25 June 2021 the two-wheel marathon in favor of the Italian Red Cross stopped at the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli.
This is the Turin-Solferino, a cycle-solidarity ride on the road, now in its second edition, made by volunteer CRI athletes with the support of the territorial committees. Held from 22 to 26 June 2021, it featured seven cyclists, each representing one of the fundamental principles of the International Movement of the Red Cross and Red Crescent: Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Voluntary Service, Unity and Universality.
In five days the cyclists, accompanied for some stretches by other volunteer friends, traveled 600 km and crossed 8 regions. They arrived in Spilimbergo during the Gemona del Friuli – Belluno stage (which also touched San Daniele del Friuli and Erto). Welcomed and refreshed by the CRI Committee of Maniago-Spilimbergo, they used their stop to visit the School.
The initiative disseminates the 7 Principles and enhances and honors the commitment and work of all the volunteers of the Red Cross who, remember, was born right on the battlefield of Solferino (II War of Independence, 1859), point of symbolic arrival of this beneficial ride.
