In 1944 Eugenio Losa founded the Bertoni company, in memory of his father-in-law's artisan workshop. In 1960 Bertoni was asked to supply the official medal for the Rome Olympic Games, modeled by the sculptor Emilio Greco.
In 1971 Bertoni won the call for the realization of the FIFA WORLD CUP with a sculpture by Silvio Gazzaniga. This is how the World Cup was first created, with lines that spiral around and close to contain the world and two victorious athletes. The first cup was made in gold, the others in golden metal maintaining the original size.
This prize is for a group of 1-6 people and includes:
- ua visit to the showroom that houses the World Cup, Champions League, Euro League and other major trophies and medals;
- a visit to the workshop where you will see a piece being made;
- a specially created gift to take home
This experience will take place on a date to be estabilished according to availability of G.D.E. Bertoni and the auction winner.
Arché Onlus began in 1991 in Milan by Father Giuseppe Bettoni to take care of the children and families affected by AIDS. Today we are responding to a new situation of suffering in which the minor is the protagonist of social discomfort and a disease.
The Arché objective is to promote the wellbeing of the minor and the other members of his family, avoiding that no one else is reduced to his issues, his disease and his error. We work with the services and institutions of the area that are involved. With them we project out interventions in Italy and abroad. Our projects are currently active in Milan, Rome, Kisii (Kenya) and Chikuni (Zambia).
Through the commitment of workers and volunteers we favor healing for the most fragile family ties and a development of a cohesive and mature community. We believe that a single persons action can contribute to the realization of an active and caring population.
Through the help of workers and volunteers, we are effective in the following ambits:
Welcoming we take into protection children and mothers sent by Social Services in particular conditions of unease to help save the compromised family relationships and assist mothers and children to become autonomous
Supporting the Family we respond to the need of minors and the families that are considered vulnerable due to social or psychological unease. We support the integration of the foreign families valuing the richness of diversity through discovery and coordination of self guided help groups. We promote the access to education for AIDS orphans.
