FLORENCE – “Leave DeSign”, this is the title of the gala evening organized on November 19 by Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Italy which returns to the IBM Studios in Piazza Gae Aulenti. The title plays on the assonance between “leaving a mark” and “design”. During the event, there will be an auction conducted by Cristiano De Lorenzo, Director of Christie’s, partner of the evening together with the magazine Interni which collected 35 pieces of design, exhibited in preview from 28 to 30 September last at Palazzo Clerici. During the evening, presented by Neri Marcorè, and which will also be attended by Kerry Kennedy, seventh daughter of Senator Robert Francis Kennedy and Honorary President of RFK Italy, and by Stefano Lucchini, President of the Association in Italy, the guests will listen to the story of the results and future commitments of the organization, active since 2007 in the field of human rights education and advocacy with a program of socio-work inclusion of migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and people in a state of vulnerability and, from spring 2020, also in support of the communities where it operates, namely the Tuscan and Lombard communities. The winners with the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Italia Award 2021 “leave their mark”: General Francesco Paolo Figliuolo for his human and professional contribution to the protection of the right to health, Italian Sport, for his commitment to spreading values ​​of solidarity, resilience, inclusion especially in the years of the pandemic and which will be withdrawn by the athletes Monica Contraffatto, Bronze Medal at the Paralympics of the Tokyo 2020 Games, Luigi Busà, Karate Gold Medal in Tokyo 2020 and Filippo Tortu , sprinter and champion in Tokyo 2020; the Italian Ambassador to the United States Mariangela Zappia for her commitment to gender equality at the United Nations and the Honorable Mara Carfagna, for her constant work in favor of the most vulnerable: from the law introducing the crime of stalking, to the project of reclamation, after a century, of the slums of Messina. “This evening is dedicated to all those who, with their work and their energies, have helped Italy in these last two years of pandemic that have seen RFK Italia committed to bringing help to the most fragile people and to the most needy families, in particular in Florence with the Italian Red Cross and in the Milan area with Caritas Ambrosiana. With these awards we give recognition to those who, with their work, ensure that our country, after the tragedy experienced in the first months of 2020, is now an example for the prompt reaction to the health challenge; to the sports talents who in the summer of 2021 climbed the podiums of numerous disciplines, also bringing to Tokyo the values ​​of solidarity and inclusion promoted by sport and to the institutions that have been fighting for equality for years gender, at a time when many women continue to be victims of violence and discrimination “these are the words of Stefano Lucchini, President of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Italy. The evening will be enlivened by the music of the duo composed of Michela Lombardi and Piero Frassi, and by a string quintet of the Cameristi della Scala.
