A Night for ANT 2023
The Poggi Ramps host the ANT Foundation Gala on 5 July
After the great success of the past editions, Wednesday 5 July sees the return of A Night for ANT - a charity event in total white sponsored by the Municipality of Florence - organised to raise funds in support of the free specialist home medical assistance service BIMBI in ANT, which the Foundation makes available to young paediatric cancer patients so that they can be cared for in the warmth of their own homes, among their affections and the things they hold dearest. This year the evening is dedicated, like all the events of 2023, to the 45th anniversary of ANT, founded in Bologna in 1978 by oncologist Franco Pannuti, which then spread throughout Italy.
Guests are welcomed in a splendid new location, Le Rampe del Poggi, which provides the ideal stage for the event (already sold out) featuring art, music, fashion and much more. The evening starts at 8 pm with a placée dinner. During the event there will be moments of great emotion with the extraordinary participation of some famous surprise musical guests. The evening has the artistic direction of Jacopo Durazzani, is made possible thanks to the invaluable support of Main Donor Sammontana and sees the participation of Simone Martini, Florentine ANT Delegate, together with the Committee of Honour. Its members include: Sibilla Bagnoli, Sammontana's Image and Communication Manager, Patrizia Bacci Biondi, Entrepreneur and owner of Roy Rogers, Paola Calosi, Notary Public, Jacopo Durazzani, PR and Event Planner, Elisabetta Fabbri, President of Starhotels, Marinella Fani, Director and partner of Fani Gioielli, Avv. Aldo Fittante, Sara Funaro, Councillor for Welfare, Titti Giuliani Foti, journalist and writer, Anne Louise Holm Ferragamo, godmother of the committee, Agnese Landini, Sara Berni, Carlo Meli, building contractor and Ippodromo del Visarno, Francesca Pinzauti, Architect and councillor of Leo France, Fabio Rorandelli, Amm. Deleg. Gr. Rorandelli, Tony Scervino, CEO of Ermanno Scervino.
All proceeds from the event will be used to support the free home medical care service Bimbi in ANT.
