GELATO FOR A CAUSE
Carpigiani donates one of their machines to the Rizzoli Orthopedic Institute.
Putting a smile on the faces of many courageous children and adolescents. This was Carpigiani’s goal when a few weeks ago we presented the chemotherapy ward of the Rizzoli Hospital in Bologna with an ice-cream making machine. So as well as the aquarium in the hall, pictures on the walls and colourful curtains at the windows, the kids in hospital can enjoy fresh ice cream. "It’s been a real hit", said Director Stefano Ferrari. "It helps make the place a little less like a hospital, and many of our young patients have already had the opportunity to try a vanilla or chocolate cup". Another small step to making a sweeter world.
