Also this year, Italo has supported scientific research and the Telethon Foundation fundraising activity by participating to the traditional TV marathon, broadcast in the week from 16 to 23 December on the three main RAI TV channels.
Since 1990 – when it first arrived in Italy - Telethon Foundation has been working every day to help all those people fighting against rare genetic diseases that remain unknown way too often. Telethon Foundation finances the best researchers and institutes, as they believe in merit and excellence. The success achieved until now has been great – thanks to the work of the medical-scientific community – but there are many genetic diseases still without a cure. That is why supporting the Foundation’s fundraising activities is an always more essential issue.
Italo has always been sensitive towards health and research issues; that is why we support Telethon both on board of our trains and on all our communication channels.
