“We do a detailed screening on the companies that help us, and we thank Luisaviaroma for the great support.” Andrea Iacomini, spokesman for Unicef Italia stated. “The summer gala is an event with a global reach and is the first in Italy of this dimension. Unicef will use the proceeds for doses of vaccines, for school folders and to fight children’s malnutrition”.
