The Armani Group has announced that it will be switching the production of all their manufacturing plants in Italy to produce single use medical overalls, in aid of protect healthcare and frontline workers.
As if this wasn’t enough, the master designer Giorgio Armani himself has also made a generous donation of two million euros (8.2 million Dhs) to various hospitals in Milan and Roma to help fight the virus. This kind act of charity comes after weeks of donations to other medical centres in Bergamo, Piacenza and Versilia.
This is not the first Italian fashion house to help in supporting overwhelmed hospitals and healthcare workers throughout Italy. Earlier this month Donatella Versace also made an ample donation of 200.000 euros (Dhs818,000) to hospitals around one of the most affected cities in Italy, Milan.
In addition, Salvatore Ferragamo is one of the many other brands who are manufacturing sanitisers, masks and medical overalls to Italian healthcare workers fighting against the disease.
