Solferino 2018

From June 18 to June 24 2018, the traditional appointment is back at the place which inspired Henry Dunant the idea of Red Cross.


Also this year, from June 18 to June 24, Volunteers and Staff of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies will find themselves in the field where the battle of Solferino took place in 1859 when Henry Dunant had the Idea which led to the largest existing Volunteer Association.

Solferino 2018 will be more than a celebration. It will be an opportunity for training, to encounter and to experience the volunteer culture with thousands of volunteers from National Societies of the entire world.

Saturday June 23rd, #AccendiLaFiaccola

The event will end on Saturday 23th with our traditional Fiaccolata, from Solferino to Castiglione delle Stiviere, along the path made by those who carried the wounded during the battle. A unique and suggestive event illuminated by the light of thousands of torches which together, with the enthusiasm of the Volunteers, will revive the magic of that Story, of our Story.
