During the event, the route followed in 1859 by the rescuers who carried the wounded on the battlefield from Solferino to the first medical post in Castiglione delle Stiviere will be symbolically reconstructed. As every year, the event brought together thousands of Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers and workers at the site of the ‘Battle of Solferino’, which inspired Henry Dundant to set up the idea of the Red Cross.
