More than 1,850 cities participated in “Cities for Life, Cities Against the Death Penalty,” last year, in more than 90 countries on the five continents. The aim is to make use of symbolic monuments and squares to hold educational and artistic events aimed at raising public awareness. All cities taking part in the initiative make their major monuments available as “living logos”, which “speak” with the help of special lighting, thus becoming symbols of a commitment to hold a dialogue with the population aimed at achieving a world without the death penalty.
