The Project

During the first major earthquake, on August 24th, 2016, the parking garage of the Amandola hospital collapsed on one of the two ambulances of the volunteer emergency response association.  This is just one of two ambulances serving the Eastern mountain communities of the Sibillini mountain towns.  The cost of repairing this ambulance is 85,000 Euros.  The first 85,000 Euros we collect will go directly to fund these repairs.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide assistance to the victims of the series of devastating earthquakes that have rocked central Italy since August 24th, 2016. Several towns surrounding the Sibillini mountains have suffered near total destruction. Lives have been lost, services have been impaired, houses have been destroyed and places of business no longer exist.

Artist Love Italy is an effort of world renowned musicians to provide original music that can be purchased online.  Many artists have written songs specifically for this project, and these songs will not be available elsewhere.  The proceeds will go directly to small associations in the affected areas that will provide immediately needed aid to victims of the earthquake.
