Cartoon by Marco de Angelis

"Cartoonists and designers from around the world remind us that the humble dove of peace, with its white feathers, represents hope for a better quality of life for all the inhabitants of the earth." The Nobel Prize for Peace Rigoberta Menchu says of "There is only one dove", an exhibition curated and organized by Julio Lubetkin, founder of the International Festival of Graphic Humour, held from November 28 to December 20 in Villa Doria Pamphili in Rome's Palazzo Corsini.
The exhibition, which takes place within the multimedia event "The Great Channel of Peace", consists of 80 cartoons depicting the peace dove, designed by the best humorous pencils in the world, including Altan, Bucchi, Quino, Bozzetto, Staino and many others. The project aims to promote art against war and destruction.
