Tesori d’Italia Network launches the fundraising S.O.S.Teniamo l’Italia
to support the Italian companies in front of the Coronavirus emergency
The S.O.S.Teniamo l’Italia initiative (Support Italy), which already involves more than 15 Italian and foreign companies and associations, aims to create a fund to support all those activities, in particular linked to the export and tourism and publishing, which risk closure due to the blockade of the economy and the flows to and from our country.
“We continue to invest in the future but we want to protect the present and, although aware that we won’t be able to help everyone, we will certainly do our part” – here are the words of Riccardo D’Urso, president of the Network and creator of the Campaign – “The adhesion in unison with our partners and many Italian companies it is proof of how Italy is always ready and compact in dealing with emergencies. An extraordinary participation that is spreading like a wave not only for the country but also abroad. We know it is a difficult time for everyone and we are deeply grateful to those who are supporting hospitals and civil protection, but there is also an undergrowth of companies in Italy that today really needs help and, while we give our contribution from one part, it is necessary to take action to give them all the support we can. Because if you do not help the craft and industrial machinery of a country, it undermines its own ability to be generous and do charity”.
Tesori d’Italia asks for help from all the Italian public and from the over 2 million users who follow the Magazine. Just as it brings together its partners and customers in Italy and abroad, so that we can all contribute together, while staying at home, to give oxygen to the many small and medium-sized enterprises that represent the heart of our national heritage and our economy .
