We want to express our solidarity with China and all chinese people around the world in this particularly difficult moment of our history. In many countries there were episodes of racism agaist asian looking people. We don’t approve this kind of behaviour and we would like to remind to everybody that we can go through this period only if we stay united and supportive with each other.
Our best wishes go to all the people out there, in any country who are struggling with this disease. We wish you the best
