Wine and Art Catia Uliassi and the Dr. Dante Paladini Foundation
Another important project that Azienda Santa Barbara cares about is brought forward with Catia Uliassi for the Dr. Dante Paladini Foundation Onlus of Ancona, a no-profit organization engaged in supporting and aiding neuromuscular patients and, moreover, in the clinical research of the illnesses being suffered by these people. The idea started with the famous painter and restaurant owner in the Marche region, who every year creates the “labels – artworks” of the famous wine “Tardivo ma non Tardo” of the Cantina Santa Barbara. The profits obtained from the sales of each bottle is then partially donated to the Foundation.
The Dr. Dante Paladini Onlus Foundation of Ancona was created in 2008 while the operative activities were inaugurated simultaneously with the Clinical Center Institution for Neuromuscular Illnesses of the A.O. Ospedali Riuniti of Ancona. The purpose of the Onlus is to improve the quality of life of the people with neuromuscular diseases and at the same time slow down the progress of the illness through more adequate care and thanks to the improvement of the research and the training of the doctors and nurses.
The Foundation can count on the presence of the founding partners, such as A.O. Ospedali Riuniti of Ancona and the Serena Foundation of Milan, a body made up by UILDM, AISLA, Telethon Foundation and the Niguarda Hospital, entities which have an excellent background in the field of research and in the care of neuromuscular illnesses.
