Once again this year, our Foundation has benefited from the proceeds of the Celebrity Fight Night in Italy fundraising event. The famous philanthropic marathon, now in its sixth edition, was held from July 25 to July 29 in Tuscany, between the Teatro del Silenzio and Forte dei Marmi. It was particularly moving to welcome the numerous guests from overseas who had joined the initiative (all fans of Andrea Bocelli) in Lajatico, the hometown of our founder.
The American donors were offered the experience of the spectacular performance of “Ali di libertà”, directed by Luca Tommassini (who has previously worked with Madonna and Michael Jackson), with Andrea Bocelli, Matteo Bocelli and many other artists taking to the magical open air stage. Before the concert, the same location also held a picturesque al fresco dinner with a stunning view of the Tuscan hills.
CFN then moved to Forte dei Marmi on Sunday, July 28: here our founder once again opened the doors of his villa for an elegant white party for several hundreds of people, with an exclusive dinner, which was followed by the usual charity auction and finished off by the concert, during which many friends shared the stage with their host, including Tony Renis, Giovanni Caccamo, Colin Shachat, Gile Bae, and stars the likes of Matt Dillon and Carol Alt were present.
It is also thanks to important charitable initiatives such as Celebrity Fight Night in Italy that ABF is able to increase the many educational projects that it successfully carries out in Italy and around the world.
