Children's Rights Day: three dedicated days in Rome and Italian monuments are colored green

On International Day for the Rights of the Child and Adolescent, monuments throughout Italy are being colored green and Rome is dedicating three days to children.

On the occasion of the International Day for the Rights of the Child and Adolescent, on Friday, November 20, 2020, many monuments will be illuminated in green, accepting the proposal of the National Council of the Order of Psychologists, which has invited all municipalities in Italy to illuminate the most significant places in green. Green in fact recalls the concept of vitality.

The Capitoline Superintendence for Cultural Heritage is also organizing three days dedicated to childhood: from November 20 to 22 the appointment is online for Io cittadino. Children’s word on their rights: from fairy tales read in archaeological contexts to interactive games and quizzes. The initiative is part of Romarama and an opportunity to focus on the main rights of children around the world: play and recreation in a shared learning context. By visiting the facebook pages of the Superintendency and the museums, it will be possible to discover the Capitoline heritage in an interactive way, listening to fairy tales, participating live in a goose game on the footsteps of the Garibaldini, watching a video by the Museum of the Pleistocene and having fun with quizzes and games on the Napoleonic Code.

Following is the program

Nov. 20-21-22 - Casal de’ Pazzi Museum
The UN Charter on the Rights of the Child and Adolescent establishes a number of children’s rights, among them: the right to life, health, ’education and play, as well as the right to family, protection from violence, non-discrimination and listening to their opinion; especially to food, which even for Neanderthal children was of primary importance. They fulfilled that right by seeking food in nature. Children will be able to learn what it means to gather for “groceries” through a video of a playful activity of gathering fruits from the Museum’s Pleistocene garden: olives, hazelnuts and strawberry trees. Edited by the Casal de’ Pazzi Museum staff.
