Patronised Group

Orticolario has many purposes, and one of them is to donate funds raised during the main event to Como Lake’s charitable associations, which also contribute to the event realization itself.

In order to support the projects presented by the associations, an Orticolario’s fund is available at the Fondazione Provinciale della Comunità Comasca.

The Fund is destined to finance socially useful projects and interventions as regards the environmental and ecosystem protection and the enhancement of cultural heritage, as well as initiatives aimed at promoting awareness and appreciation of the natural and artistic heritage and to ensure its conservation and defense. In addition, it can be used to finance social projects by local charities.

The donations are tax deductible.

Through the charity initiatives linked to the event, in 2017 a total of € 24,500 were collected and donated to the associations so that they can implement various projects> all the details (Only in Italian version)
