In Milan’s New Club BULLONA, the “Centro Dino Ferrari” Association held a “Charity Event” in aid of scientific research at the “Centro Dino Ferrari”. The club is built on the site of Milan’s old Bullona station which opened in 1929 and is one of the last examples of turn of the century Art Nouveau railway architecture. Now entrepreneur Pino Scalise has “uncovered” Bullona and brought it “back to life” as a tribute to Milan, with a fine dining restaurant and spaces available for hosting art exhibitions.
President Marialuisa Trussardi, Past President Alberto Rusconi and Vice Presidents Manuela Consensi Dini and Camillo Olivetti, together with Prof. Nero Bresolin, Scientic Director of the “Centro Dino Ferrari” and Director of the Department of Neurosciences at the University of Milan, IRCCS Foundation Ca’ Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, welcomed the 150 guests. Entertainment was provided by illusionist Gianlupo, who amazed the guests with his tricks, and the timeless Ronnie Jones, a luminary in international soul who performed “Let The Music Play”, “You are the first, the last, my everything” and of course “White Christmas”, all harmoniously directly by the ever brilliant Jo Squillo. A DJ set closed the evening with music and dancing. Among the many guests, including Members and Friends, who attended the initiative were: Antonella Boralevi, Alberto Cordero di Montezemolo, Bruno Tronchetti Provera, Andrea and Dora Invernizzi, Adirano and Laura Morino Teso, Mario and Elena Vullo, Emi Cantoni and many others.
All proceeds go to support “Centro Dino Ferrari’s” scientific research in the field of neuromuscular diseases (Muscular Dystrophy) and neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s Disease, Lateral Amiotrophic Sclerosis, Multiple Sclerosis and Spinal Muscular Atrophy).
