The idea behind this catalogue is to support and expand projects already underway in sport, culture, and events, by widening the sponsors’ and patrons’ involvement to encompass new areas such as heritage preservation, solidarity and social inclusion, and even creating green spaces and preserving biodiversity.

Come and support projects that bring people together for the good of society.
