Rome's suburban Tiburtino III quarter is once again home to a new edition of the Falastin Festival, a four-day initiative organized by the Palestinian Association of Rome and Lazio region and the Palestinian Youth Association.
Created by Palestinian expat Yousef Salman with the aim to foster intercultural understanding and promoting Palestinian culture in the Italian capital, this year's edition of the festival also has a focus on Palestine and Latin America.

At Rome's Falastin Festival diplomatics from the Bolivian, Cuban and Venezuelan embassies reiterated their support for the just cause of Palestinian people to restore their legitimate rights.
