The Prize

Spend a day on the Montalbano set with the lead actor Luca Zingaretti, known for playing Salvo Montalbano, to see what happens behind the scenes of the “Il Commissario Montalbano” mystery series.

Italian TV producers Palomar and Carlo degli Esposti decided to make this exclusive experience possible. They are supporters of NEVER GIVE UP, a non-profit organization for the research and cure of Nutrition and Eating Disorders.

The experience is for two people. The location shootings in Ragusa, Italy are scheduled between April 24, 2017 – June 24, 2017. The visit on the set will therefore be organized during this period, on the basis of the availability of the winners, the hotel and the Producers. 

Additional Details: The winning bidder will be contacted by email. Any winner under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The Cause

NEVER GIVE UP is a nonprofit organization committed to the research and treatment of Eating Disorders (ED).

It was founded in 2014 with the intention of developing innovative online and offline platforms to support teens - the population age range that is most affected by such disorders and that faces a number of difficulties asking for help from professionals. As well as this, their family members, friends and teachers also need support from professionals. What is most worrying is the fact that anorexia and bulimia are the leading causes of death from disease in adolescents aged 12 to 25 in Italy.

In Italy, 3,665,000 people are affected by ED, but it is believed that only 10% of those suffering from the above-mentioned disorders seek treatment services due to the lack of recognition or underestimation of symptoms, inability to ask for help, and fear of being judged.

NEVER GIVE UP was developed to break down this wall, inform, support and protect people, often youngsters, from online sites where chats and interactions unfortunately often conceal incitement attempts of anorexia and bulimia, thus exacerbating the disorder itself. Instead, NEVER GIVE UP has developed a site for positive sharing.
