On the occasion of her eightieth birthday, Chiara received the honorary citizenship of Rome: “I have received other citizenships, but this is certainly the one I love most, because Rome is Rome. Not only is it rich in history, art and culture, but above all it is like a precious treasure chest that contains the heart of catholicity. ‘Rome is unity’, as Pope Paul VI said. Rome is called to contribute to achieving universal fraternity in the world”[1].
