“A future for Amatrice” – to support the victims of earthquake in Italy

The Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada – West kindly invites you to join a solidarity initiative “A future for Amatrice” in support of the victims of the earthquake in Italy. As you maybe already know, Slow Food movement announced last week an earthquake relief campaign for the mountain village of Amatrice, which was flattened by the earthquake last Wednesday.

With A future for Amatrice (#unfuturoperamatrice) we are asking restaurants around the world to add to their menus the dish that is the symbol of the hard-hit city, and to keep it there for at least one year. And we are asking the customers to choose it. For every “amatriciana” ordered, 3 CAD (2 Euros) will be donated, 1.5 CAD by the restaurant and 1.5 CAD by the customer.

In the meantime, we are also inviting everyone to choose food and agricoltural products that come from the quake-stricken areas in order to support their local economy.

The funds will be directly transferred to the City of Amatrice.

The International Bank Account Number (IBAN) of the City of Amatrice is:

IT 28 M 08327 73470 000000006000

Swift Code: ROMAITRR

Reason: A future for Amatrice
