IItaly is living through one of the most difficult and painful times in its recent history.

Over 110,000 thousand sick, more than 13,000 dead, and some 4,000 persons in Intensive Care in critical condition.  Our healthcare system is under enormous pressure; our doctors and nurses are face-to-face with the impact of the pandemic every day, fighting the devastating effects of Covid-19. Many of them have been infected, over 50 physicians have lost their lives, but they are not giving up — they continue to answer the call of their country and its people with extraordinary dedication and generosity. 

The Italian Government is working ceaselessly to reduce the impact of the disease, by increasing the financial resources devoted to this battle and by searching the world for the health equipment needed to fill this unprecedented demand.  But it is still not enough; we must do more!

To help support the fight against this terrible pandemic and do our part, we have, together with the Canadian Red Cross, launched a fundraising campaign Covid-19.AiutiAMOl’Italia!”. The funds we will raise will go directly to the Italian Red Cross, to support it and the Italian Civil Protection in their efforts to fight Covid-19.

Inspired by the love that so many of you feel for the land of your heritage, by the solidarity we have for those on the front lines of this battle, by the human bond we share with those men and women who are exposed to the disease and its fatal consequences, for the part of them that is in each of us, in support of all human lives…

If you would like additional information on the campaign, please visit the website at 

Together we will get through this!  With my most heartfelt thanks,  

                                                                                     Claudio Taffuri
