AMORE for SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH: Dolce&Gabbana and Humanitas University still together against Coronavirus
Dolce&Gabbana are working together with Humanitas University to strengthen their efforts toward scientific research: AMORE for SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH, a new project of the Italian maison. The new campaign celebrates life and the beauty of Italy, starring actress Sofia Vergara and showcasing the iconic Devotion bag. A portion of proceeds from the sales of these bags through Dolce&Gabbana e-commerce will be donated to Humanitas University to support the study coordinated by Prof. Mantovani aimed at clarifying the responses of the immune system to Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, the basis for developing diagnostic and therapeutic interventions.
“The whole world and all of our lives will never be the same again. We truly hope that all of this will lead to a rebirth, and want to do our part so that all of us, especially future generations, can one day benefit from these fundamental scientific discoveries.”
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana
“Dolce&Gabbana has been proactive since the very beginning in support of scientific research to fight against Coronavirus, even before it was a global emergency. We stand with scientists and researchers who are dedicated to studying the largely unexplored role of the immune system in fighting against this deadly virus. Thanks to their donation, a dedicated team lead by Professor Alberto Mantovani at Humanitas University, in collaboration with the virologists of Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele, is working on an expansive research project studying the responses of our natural defenses to Coronavirus, in an effort to lay the basis for the development of diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. Together we are working towards a resolution to this global problem.” Roberto Cagliero, Director Fundraising of Humanitas.
Morever, also the rapper Davido dedicated a special song in support of Dolce&Gabbana and Humanitas University to strengthen efforts toward scientific research benefitting global health.
These projects further strengthen the active collaboration with Humanitas University, which the Italian fashion house also supports through scholarships for students of the MedTec School, the innovative degree programme in Medicine, designed and developed by Humanitas University and Politecnico di Milano. The new degree aims to integrate and strengthen the skills of the professional figure of the medical doctor with the skills relevant to Biomedical Engineering.
