​The death of the Foundress of the Telefono Rosa

In 1988, when no one was talking about violence to women (although it was a widespread scourge), Giuliana Dal Pozzo gave life in Rome to a temporary counter in the municipality, the “Telefono Rosa”, an association of volunteers for women who are victims of violence within the walls of their home and at their work place. In one room there were five woman volunteers taking turns to listen to women who were calling from every part of the country. So it was that a new form of social service came into being in which today dozens of women volunteers collaborate: crime and civil lawyers, psychologists and cultural mediators of various nationalities. Giuliana Dal Pozzo died at the age of 91. In 2007 she was nominated Grand Official of the Republic by President Giorgio Napolitano precisely because of her “meritorious activity” in aid of women victims of violence.
