For each bottle of Barbera d’Asti Dianae sold, part of the earnings will be donated to the Piedmontese Foundation for Cancer Research Onlus.
The Foundation was established in 1986 to offer a significant contribution to the defeat of cancer through the creation of an oncology center in Piedmont, the Candiolo Institute of Turin. The organization combines scientific research with clinical practice and provides the best human and technological resources to cancer patients.
The Piedmontese Foundation for Cancer Research is responsible for finding economic resources through fundraising activities and organizes all the initiatives and events necessary to achieve this goal.
The Candiolo Institute is the only Italian cancer research and treatment center created exclusively through the support of over 300,000 private donors who have made it a center of international importance. The Candiolo Institute is also the only “Scientific Hospitalization and Care Institute” in Piedmont recognized by the Ministry of Health, due to the important discoveries made and published in the most prestigious international scientific journals. It is included in the Oncology Network of Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta and its services are provided in agreement with the National Health Service or the self-employed regime. It started its business in 1996 and has since developed new spaces and services. Today it covers 56,500 square meters, of which about 10 thousand are dedicated to research. About 800 people work in Candiolo, including Italian and international doctors, researchers, nurses, administrative and technical staff.
The Foundation has planned an important development plan for the next few years that will allow the Institute to grow further, thanks to new spaces for doctors, researchers, patients, and people close to them. The goal is to treat more and more people and to give better and better treatment.
