24 December 2011 was a special day for the city
The Libyan people celebrated Independence Day for the first time after 42 years and, for the occasion, COLORS magazine donated UNHATE Dove to the citizens: a large, dove-shaped sculpture made by Fabrica and coated with more than 22,000 spent bullet cartridges, collected from war scenes all over our planet.
A gift, a symbol of peace and hope that has been installed in the gardens of the Palazzo Reale.
“The handing-over of the dove is the first concrete and symbolic gesture by the UNHATE Foundation”, commented Alessandro Benetton, Executive Deputy Chairman of the Benetton Group. “The Foundation, which we created with the aim of combatting the culture of hate, intends to be both the engine and an active figure of the desire to participate and change that lives in the citizens of the world, and in particular among young people”.
