ANT 2024 - Galleria Cavour

As announced during the press conference at the headquarters of Confcommercio Ascom Bologna, this year, the traditional charity auction in favour of ANT, now in its 15th edition, will be embellished with an important novelty: an engaging musical show kindly offered by Gioia Martini‘s La Martini s.r.l., owner of the section of Galleria Cavour that extends from the entrance on Via Farini to the central crossroads.

The evening will begin on May 22, 2024 with the customary auction at 7.00 p.m., made possible thanks to the precious contribution of the city’s main commercial entities belonging to the Bolognese quadrilateral, including, of course, some of our prestigious boutiques such as Prada, Moncler and the Bartorelli and Tiffany jewellers.

Following this, the programme will continue with a tortellini and champagne party and, of course, with the festive live show of the Romagna band Smoma, who will offer their repertoire of hits revisited in a glamorous key. The event is organised in collaboration with Confcommercio Ascom Bologna and with the support, as Charity Partners, of BCC Emil Banca, Penske and Pwc s.r.l.

The contribution of Gioia Martini, to whom we also owe the thematic set-up of Galleria Cavour in the party area, has, as she herself declared, the aim of making the evening even more exciting, thus gathering more attendees and consequently bringing more contributions to the fundraising effort. This year, as told by Eleonora Gazzotti of the Eubiosia ANT Committee, the initiative is in favour of the project for the psychological support, via tele-consultation, of the caregiver, a key figure in the care and support of cancer patients.

The entire proceeds of the evening will in fact be donated to Fondazione ANT Italia ONLUS, founded in Bologna in 1978 thanks to the initiative of oncologist Franco Pannuti, and which has now become a precious reality offering free specialist medical assistance at home to cancer patients at no cost to their families. To date, it has assisted over 155,000 patients in 29 provinces and 19 regions. Tickets for the auction and the subsequent musical evening are available on the official website of Fondazione ANT.
