What we have done, what we shall do

  • In 2003 the Garden of the Righteous Worldwide was set up on Monte Stella Hill of Milan upon Gariwo proposal. The Garden is dedicated to the exemplary figures of moral resistance. We have created other memory places in Italy and worldwide. Now we want to create new Gardens in Kigali and Warsaw and redesign the one of Milan as a place for encounter and dialogue.
  • On 10 May 2012 the European Parliament welcomed the Gariwo's call to established 6 March as the European Day for the Righteous. On 6 March 2013 we celebrated the exemplary figures of the Righteous all over Europe thanks to a network of supporters, which we are seeking to enlarge to spread everywhere the values of responsibility, tolerance and solidarity.
  • With educators, scholars and associations we develop pathways for the schools of every grade. We have created a kit with a game and a comic strip about the Righteous, DVDs and further insights divided into themes, for a dynamic and innovative teaching technique. We aim at distributing a sample of our kit in every classroom of the Italian school system.
  • Wefor is Gariwo's teaching kit created to develop the virtual and interactive Gardens of the Righteous of Europe. The European Community chose it as an example of excellence about the theme of memory. Our purpose is to increase dialogue with the users, update the documents at our disposal and build new virtual spaces.
  • Over the years we held meetings with Righteous people. witnesses and artists, as well as congresses, book presentations, seminars with the teachers. We took the theatrical show Il Memorioso into schools and theatres all over Italy and the concerts for the Righteous to all European capitals. We need your help to go on…
