Italian supercar manufacturer Lamborghini has converted departments of its production plant in Sant’Agata Bolognese to produce surgical masks and protective plexiglass shields. The masks will be donated to the Sant’Orsola-Malpighi Hospital in Bologna to be used in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.



Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, comments: “During this emergency, we feel the need to make a concrete contribution. The S. Orsola-Malpighi Hospital is an institution with which we have had a collaborative relationship for years, through both professional consultancy in promoting programs to protect our workers’ health, and in research projects. We will win this battle together by working in union, supporting those who are at the forefront of fighting this pandemic every day.”



As a sign of unity and support for the entire nation facing the Coronavirus emergency, every evening Lamborghini lights up the historic headquarter buildings in Sant’Agata Bolognese, with the colors of the Italian flag.



Carmakers around the world are trying to do their part to help their respective countries deal with the pandemic. Britian-based Jaguar Land Rover donated 160 cars to the British Red Cross. Similarly, Lamborghini is trying to do their part for their own country. As Italy remains one of the worst affected countries during the COVID-19 pandemic, a helping hand is surely welcomed.
