“It is moving to see you committed to doing your job while enduring the struggles and enormous strain that the entire world has become aware of. And to see you cry. I believe this feeling is linked to the fact that I wished to join the medical profession when I was growing up and looking for a path of my own. All of the Giorgio Armani staff is sensitive to this reality and is sensitive to all of you: from the stretcher bearer to the nurse, from the general practitioners to the specialist consultants. My warmest thoughts are with you all.” – Giorgio Armani
