The following report and event updates were provided by the One Billion Rising Italy Coordinators Nico Corradini & Nicoletta Billi: 

In Galatina, Puglia,  a day together in support of migrant women to say stop to all forms of violence. A day that friends of Galatina dedicated to Nasra saying “We, who live in the land of landings, we dedicate this day to Nasra, the Somali woman found dead a few days ago on the coast of Santa Maria di Leuca. He was looking for a better life.”

In Lecce, we are Rising at Borgo San Nicola prison, with the female prisoners.

In Roma, a flashmob with, colorful holi colors, the idea of using colored powders to be launched at the end of the ballet.

In Perugia, activists translated into L.I.S. the song “Break the chain” and the inclusion of sign language in some moments of the choreography, also to reiterate that disability can make it even more difficult to defend, recognition and reporting of violence. And a group exhibition of vaginas that talk about vaginas

In Novara, activists reinterpretated of the choreography with the same music but more free dance. The park benches will be entirely covered with red flowers made of crocheting. As well as any signs bearing parts of the lyrics.
