Turin/Milan, 24 March 2020 – Intesa Sanpaolo contributes to the construction of a field hospital by the National Association of the Alpini on the grounds of the Bergamo Fair with a donation of €350,000, to purchase ventilators, x-ray systems, laboratory analysis equipment, monitors, aspirators, oxygen producers and other essential healthcare supplies.

This contribution for the construction of the field hospital in Bergamo may be increased by an additional €100,000, also thanks to the launch of a fundraising campaign through April 6 dedicated to this specific project and already active on the forfunding.it website, Intesa Sanpaolo’s crowdfunding platform open to all.

This initiative by Intesa Sanpaolo to support the community of Bergamo is in addition to the €100 million euros already committed to the Department of Civil Protection, which will soon reach the most affected areas throughout Italy, including Lombardy.

Carlo Messina, CEO of Intesa Sanpaolo stated:

“We remain close to the communities of Bergamo with this concrete commitment, which will provide much-needed tools and supplies to ensure this structure is fully and quickly brought online by the ANA Onlus Foundation. At a time of such need, Intesa Sanpaolo wants to show its direct support for Bergamo and make a contribution that allows us to face and overcome this emergency together”.

Sebastiano Favero, National President of ANA and ANA ONLUS stated:

“Our Alpini, as in the past, remain ready to go to the frontline to help those in need. In this particularly critical moment, our field hospital and the emergency care teams play an important part in our effort to support the people of Bergamo, bringing not only the commitment and professionalism of our men and women, but an absolute dedication to a common cause. Strengthened by our history, once again we will be able to defeat the enemy.”
