“In times like this, it is important to be united and support however we can to help all those who are in the front lines, fighting every day to save hundreds of lives. This is why, Allegra and I have decided to make a personal donation of €200,000 to the intensive care department of San Raffaele hospital in Milan.
Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by this disease and to all the doctors and medical staff who have been working heroically non-stop in the past weeks in the effort to take care of our loved ones. This is when we, as a society, need to stand together and care for one another.”
A week ago, their fellow colleague Giorgio Armani donated a total of 1 million euros to a number of Rome and Milan hospitals.
