FORNASETTI TAKES PART IN THE ‘DESIGN LOVES MILANO’ CHARITY FUNDRAISING
Fornasetti takes part in the online charity auction Design Loves Milano spearheaded by creative agency Mr. Lawrence in collaboration with Cambi Auction House.
Together with an incredible roster of prominent international designers, Fornasetti donated three of its collectable design pieces to benefit the ASST. (Azienda Socio Sanitaria Territoriale) Fatebenefratelli of Ospedale Luigi Sacco in Milan.
The association was chosen as the charity partnership for Design Loves Milano, because of their current and future work ensuring the recovery of the city of Milan, one of the Italian cities severely hit by the Covid-19 pandemic. The donation will help Ospedale Sacco with the purchase of equipment and services to sustain local research groups in the development of a vaccine to stop the spreading of Covid-19.
The catalogue will be available on designlovesmilano.com on 23 April, the online auction will take place on 12 May 2020.
