Wings STOP Whistles Staffetta 2022

This year our Staffetta WINGS joined another cause – Whistle Project which aims to prevent and fight Verbal Sexual Harassment (VSH) and catcalling in sport.

On the 25th of November – International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, Castelletto Ticino, where the WINGS were born, gave start of the Boat Relay WINGS Stop Whistle 2022.

Angelica’s gentle arpa tones floated over the lake with a message of hope of a world with no violencе, we lit the torch and the boat set off to spread the message around Lago Maggiore.

The boat first stop was Sesto Calende. We are so grateful to councilors Joe CAPRILIA and Claudia D’Onofrio and the many supporters of WINGS in Sesto Calende who demonstrated one more time that together we can overcome violence!

The reception of the WINGS stop WHISTLE relay in Lesa was also very emotional. With the phrase “Words can kill” in different languages, the pupils of secondary school first grade “A. Manzoni” proclaimed RESPECT and NON VIOLENCE. Grazie ragazze e ragazzi di Lesa! We trust on you to build a better world!
Thanks a lot also to Angelo Luca Bona – mayor of Lesa, Jessica Bona and Federica Schiavini – town councillors, and the teachers Paola Strola, Massimo Mantovani, Oenella Colombo, Donatella D’ Andrea for the great support!

The scars are a sign that it has been hard. The smile is the sign that you made it.

– Mother Teresa of Calcutta

We will remember for sure this quote from Mother Teresa of Calcutta, written on a red bench in Angera. Local associations and citizens together with the councilor of Angera Antonio Campagnuolo and the mayor of Ranco Mr. Cerutti said NO to all kind of violence against women. Thank you all for being with us for another year!
