The last few years have underlined the importance of medical and scientific research like never before. The Armani Group has supported the field through a number of study grants for promising young researchers and grants to support specific research projects.
The Group also supports environmental research through the Fondazione Giorgio Armani, which has joined EU and private funding to subsidize an important research project conducted jointly by the University of Naples Federico II and the Italian National Research Council (CNR) in Pozzuoli to protect biodiversity and the environment.
The study, which is supported by the local government and the WWF, began last September with an experimental phase on the Sicilian island of Pantelleria. It aims to examine the efficiency of special effective microorganism (EM) mixes in purifying wastewaters and turning organic waste into compost suitable for agriculture.
Once the protocols and processes have been established, the program’s long-term goal is to continue operating on the island and expand into other areas of Italy.
