Strong emotions for Chiara Ferragni and Fedez who received the Ambrogino d'oro in Milan
Exciting moments for Chiara Ferragni and Fedez who received the Ambrogino d’oro. The Ferragnezes received the prestigious honor from the hands of Giuseppe Sala, mayor of Milan, during a rich, touching and hopeful ceremony that involved personalities who have worked on the front line to fight against Covid.
Chiara Ferragni and Fedez arrived at Palazzo Marino, the Town Hall, wearing a sober and total black look. The only touch of color for the fashion blogger – who is expecting her second child after Leo – are red shoes. A recognition, that of the Ambrogino d’oro, that the Ferragnez have largely earned thanks to their commitment to raise funds during the Coronavirus emergency. Thanks to their presence on Instagram and the influence they have on millions of people, Chiara and Fedez have made it possible to create a new intensive care unit at the San Raffaele hospital in Milan in a very short time, saving many lives.
"During the first phase of the health emergency, they put notoriety at the service of the fight against Covid-19 to try to soothe the wounds of their city – reads the note revealing the reasons for the award -. With an ironic story about life as a Milanese family in quarantine, they raised awareness of the importance of observing the rules to contain the infection. With altruism combined with a practical sense, they launched a fundraiser for the expansion of the intensive care unit of San Raffaele Hospital in record time. To this extraordinary result is added the commitment as volunteers of the 'Milano Aiuta' initiative. Preparing the shopping and cycling around the city to deliver food to families in difficulty, they showed how important it is, even with simple gestures, to reach out to the most fragile in the sign of an authentic Ambrosian spirit ”.
The Municipality has chosen to award the Ambrogini's Grand Gold Medal to the doctors and nurses who died fighting Covid-19. The Medals of Memory were instead assigned to Beppe Allegri and Mauro Rosmini, taxi drivers who died from the Coronavirus, to Cristina Cattafesta, activist for women's rights, and Raffaele Masto, journalist of Radio Popolare.
In addition to Chiara Ferragni and Fedez, Giorgio Vittadini, professor of the University of Milan Bicocca, the singer-songwriter Fabio Concato, Sergio Escobar, Claudio Trotta, the sailor Ambrogio Beccaria, Cosima Buccoliero, director, received the Ambrogino d'oro of the Bollate prison.
