the project

Villaggio della Pace (Peace Village) was founded in Rome to give voice to young people from all around the world who, like you, choose to be actively engaged in the development of the society they live in and for whom peace is a fundamental value. You will have the chance to discuss with institutional representatives, secular and religious community leaders, representatives from civil society organisations, Nobel Peace Prize laureates and young activists to find and propose sustainable solutions to current global issues. Villaggio della Pace gives you the opportunity to express your opinions, to ask questions of world leaders and to propose new ideas to build an inclusive, non-discriminatory society based on peace and human rights. Moreover, we will reuse some public buildings in Rome (and other cities) that are not needed anymore to build a permanent peace lab, where you will be able to cooperate with your peers and organise recreational and cultural activities that promote peace.

Join us!

Eutropian pays homage to the Centenary of the garden neighborhood of Rome

100 years and two bridges for Peace: Testaccio celebrates La Garbatella

Rome’s Eighth Borough and First Borough united in the ideals of community and mutual support through dialogue

« Youth is happy because it has the ability to see beauty. Anyone who can maintain the ability to see beauty will never get old. ».

(Franz Kafka)

The idea of Villaggio della Pace was born on an autumn afternoon in front of the Palladium, and is perhaps also inspired by the origins of the district hosting that theater (and that now observes its centenary) - "La Garbatella", launching and concluding its celebration on the International Day of Peace (21 September 2020), in a tribute to one of the neighborhoods in Rome most adapted to human dimensions. Today one of the most coveted in the capital, as a hamlet it signals redemption for an area long considered a bit infamous.

They say, credibly, that its name derives from the presence in the neighborhood of a tavern whose owner was so notoriously kind and polite (garbata in Italian) that it took on the name "the polite hostel" (la garbata ostella). According to legend, the name of the hostess was Carlotta, and the tavern was located on the main road that pilgrims walked while visiting the seven main churches in Rome. QuotingGianni Rivolta, "The original name Concordia was given by the King as a sign of social détente in the period of the Red Biennium (1919-20) and during the Fascist period the Regime tried to call it Remuria with little success", but in the end the popular name was imposed: Garbatella.



The opening session of Villaggio della Pace will consist of four round tables, where current global issues will be discussed through the lenses of peace and human rights, and with a cross-cutting and interdisciplinary approach. Participation in the roundtables will give you the opportunity to share your opinions and to ask questions to the speakers in each room.

For plenary sessions there are a limited number of places available. Don’t miss your chance to attend, register here.

If all the available places are taken, you can follow the live event on our Facebook page.

An occasion to meet

21 September 2020

The occasion for participants in Villaggio della Pace is to share with, and to meet, each other. Each one of us has his or her own needs, but through knowledge we discover that some are common needs: emotions, vulnerability, impressions, sadness, dissatisfaction, elation or resilience are shared feelings. Co-sharing means shaping a more united and supportive community.This is a moment that expresses one of the values of Villaggio della Pace: it tries to link and connect opinions and lives from all around the world.

On the 21st of September the afternoon plenary session will be held in English to welcome international speakers and young people.

See you soon!

On the way to Peace

Villaggio della Pace wants to transform dialogues into educational paths, exported to different places: national institutions , classrooms, international meetings and Peace Marches with the aim of valuing and expanding the engagement of young people, civil society organisations, institutions, and Nobel Peace Prize laureates to develop education on peace and citizenship for children and young people.

A Peace March from Rome will pass through other Italian cities and arrive in the Middle East; let’s meet in the cities!

«Peace is a choice. Let’s learn to act together»

On the 21 September we will be surprised…
