San Benedetto del Tronto donates Paintings

Posted by International Inner Wheel | Oct 11, 2018 |

IIW Club of San Benedetto del Tronto (district 209) has donated to the new children’s ward in the hospital a series of panels painted by the artist Franca Maria Fanni.   These paintings are full of joy so that the time the little patients spend in those rooms is enriched only with beautiful colors. 

With great sensitivity towards the world of children the artist has tried to stimulate their individual fantasy and the creativity of each child.

A Club President Barbara Novelli Ottaviani with some club members was present at the inauguration of the new department.  During the ceremony in which the regional president Luca Ceriscioli and the Chief Consultant Pediatrician Ermanno Ruffini participated, the director of medical zone 5 Giulietta Capocasa thanked Inner Wheel for the gracious gift which manifests the attention of our women’s association to children’s affective needs.  

 “After looking   around the rooms of the hospital, this idea suddenly came to me”, the artist said, “it was destiny that I did this project together with Inner Wheel.  Although this is not an easy moment for me, the realisation of these pictures has been a marvelous moment, and I have become fond of the characters that I have created”.    

The Club President expressed her thanks to the artist and her satisfaction in achieving an important service project for the town in line with the indication “Happier futures, better lives” that in the past six years have guided our projects in the whole world and with this new indication “Caring for women and girls”.
