After cancelling his Milan Fashion Week show due to coronavirus, and seeing Northern Italy be plagued by the health crisis, fashion designer Giorgio Armani has donated 1.25 million euros to help combat coronavirus with money going toward Italian hospitals and other institutions working to fight the health crisis.

The Luigi Sacco hospital, San Raffaele hospital, the Istituto dei Tumori in Milan, and Istituto Lazzaro Spallanzani in Rome will all see funds from the donation.
