Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of the artexvino=acqua charity auction organised by Fondazione Milano per Expo 2015 and by Associazione Arte Continua at the Piccolo Teatro Studio Melato, Milan on October 26. The auction raised €136,200.

The entire proceeds will be donated to the Jeunes Filles Pour l’Agrò project in Togo, and will be used to buy earthmoving equipment to permit access to water in the field, particularly for project cultivations at risk of drought.

We can conclude that the combination of art and wine can create meaningful forms of solidarity, and in this case will make an important contribution to consolidating an already thriving micro industrial chain for transforming tomatoes and fruit run by 250 young women of the Savane region.
