Ciao. Siamo così felici che vi hanno aderito la nostra comunità. I lived in Firenze over 20 years ago but now, my Italian is molto pessimo.

What a wonderful organization and I would love for you to share with us some of your experiences with Clown One Italia Onlus. You might like to connect with our member, Dani, who works for Circus Oz in Australia, which is committed to gender equity and social justice, as well as inspiring generations of Australians.

Take a look around at your groups ( and read some of the journals from our members ( With a group, you can build a powerful network bringing together PulseWire members with similar visions who want to share ideas or actions. With the group journal, you can brainstorm solutions, pose questions, test ideas and create a support network for your visions.

I am so happy that you have found PulseWire and look forward to reading more from you. A dopo,
PulseWire Community Director
