A general view shows the eighteen pillars of the new Genoa bridge illuminated with the red colours of international Red Cross, for celebrating Henry Dunant on his birthday, in Genoa, northern Italy, 08 May 2020.

Henry Dunant, or Henri Dunant (1828-1910), was a Swiss humanitarian and co-founder of the Red Cross. The new bridge is under construction after the Morandi highway bridge partially collapsed on 14 August 2018, killing a total of 43 people.
