Now Brembo will help on the front to “slow down”: the company's headquarters are in Curno in the province of Bergamo, the epicenter of the Corona disaster in Italy. Brembo is not deceived and is listening to a donation of one million euros for research in the fight against Covid-19.

The considerable sum will be based on three taxes from the Demas Papa Giovanni XXIII, the FROM foundation (Fondazione per la Ricerca Ospedale the Bergamo) and the Mario Negri Institute.

"After an initial donation to a nursing home at the Bergamo hospital, we needed to do our own research to find a drug for Covid-19 as soon as possible," said Alberto Bombassei, President of Brembo. «Research is also the art in which we see ourselves as a company. We believe that it is the payment method to find a future solution to this important situation. »

In Italy, 92,472 coronavirus cases were heard in just over five weeks, with the last death toll recorded in the boot country related to Covid-19 exceeding 10,000.
