Salvatore Rossi, TIM Foundation’s Chairman: “There are those who fight this war in the front line: doctors, intensive-care specialists, nurses, all hospital staff who welcome the sick affected by this virus, especially in Lombardy and Veneto, but not only. In such a dramatic moment, we cannot leave these people alone. It is on them that our safety, our well-being, the fate of the most unfortunate of us, who have contracted this virus, depend”.
