As italian citizen without the right to live freely together with whoever I want
May 2006: A story of a fight for love and human rights. A 1.300 km, two day journey to take a rose to Tamara from Italy till Serbia, on my Honda Transalp 650. A journey facing natural elements (wind, rain, fog ...) where result may not always be what one expects! An adventure very similar to the procedure required to get a touristic visa by way of a letter of presentation/invitation .. a big question mark !!
The idea about the trip - One red rose for Tamara crossing the Schengen borders
I got the idea for the trip with the aim to spread the sad stories of around 20.000 Italians per years who have a sentimental relationship with extracomunitarian partner. As an italian citizen I feel discriminated against with respect to other Italians who are free to live together without being pushed into getting married. This is a fight for human rights !

The story of a fight for love and human rights
The red rose and the Honda Transalp
Because an un-married couple is not officially recognized, those who have a sentimental relationship with an extracomunitarian partner are under discrimination. The relationship depends on a turist visa which permits a 90 day entry per year into Italy for the extracomunitarian citizen.
