Gethsemane, a work in progress

The first phase of the project to restore the Church of Gethsemane has been made possible through the support of ATS pro Terra Sancta, with financing from the Italian consulate PMS (Palestinian Municipalities Support) Program that provides for collaboration between an Italian municipality and a Palestinian entity. In this case, Rovereto is the Italian municipality supporting the project, while the Palestinian partner is the Mosaic Center of Jericho.

Everyone can contribute to carrying out a project that is of unique historical and cultural importance!
