Rosetta Brambilla, Honorary Citizenship Ceremony for Belo Horizonte

During my trip to Brazil I was a guest of Rosetta Brambilla, an Italian nun who has been living for the past 49 years in the heart of the slums in Belo Horizonte. Since her arrival, Rosetta saw the need to start with the children, because as they are embraced and loved, they initiated change within their family and therefore, within their neighborhood. Through the years, she has founded eight training centers attended by thousands of young people.
