Proceeds will be donated for a new microscope.
The enchanting 18th-century Palazzo Serbelloni was the perfect location for the charitable event “Dinner & Dance” of the “Centro Dino Ferrari” Association ETS, with the aim of supporting scientific research in the field of neuromuscular, neurodegenerative, and cerebrovascular diseases. The funds raised during the evening will be donated to purchase a highly precise electron microscope, a cutting-edge device.
The charity evening of the Centro Dino Ferrari Association
The dinner was introduced by President Dr. Marialuisa Trussardi, who warmly welcomed all the participants, also on behalf of Engineer Piero Ferrari, Honorary President of the Association and Vice President of Casa di Maranello. Additionally, the President of the Lombardy Region, Attilio Fontana, attended the event to extend a warm greeting to all present and wish the best for the numerous future projects of the “Centro Dino Ferrari.”
The evening, which saw a full house attendance, was enhanced by the beautiful voice of singer Patrizia Zanetti. The audience present testified with their generous contribution to the importance of advancing scientific research. Only in this way it will be possible to counter the serious neuromuscular, neurodegenerative, and cerebrovascular diseases addressed by the “Centro Dino Ferrari” of the University of Milan, IRCCS Ca’ Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico Foundation.
The purchase of an electron microscope
The event is part of the numerous charitable initiatives organized throughout the year by the “Centro Dino Ferrari” Association. The ambitious goal is to raise the necessary funds to acquire a state-of-the-art electron microscope, capable of studying the complex internal structures of cells using an electron beam that passes through and magnifies them up to 100,000 times. This extraordinary equipment will enable the analysis of tissues from patients affected by severe genetic diseases, providing crucial information for scientific research and allowing for increasingly accurate and timely diagnoses, essential for the well-being of patients.
The charity initiative was possible thanks to several actors who joined the cause. Starting from the hospitality of Palazzo Serbelloni to the contribution of the three main sponsors: Dompè, Taroni, and Coeclerici. Then there were the technical partners such as Girardi Winemakers, La Scolca, L’Astemia Pentita, and Tavola SpA. Finally, the media partners, including Excellence Magazine and Melismelis.
