Initiative for small businesses in Turin area

On Friday, April 3th, "Specchio dei tempi" contacted 250 small businesses who won the announcement "Un respiro per Torino 2" ("A breathe for Turin 2"), the second edition of an announcement started in March 2020 in support of firms and small companies in the Turin area. The announcement, launched on March 6th, had the goal to support those realities hardly affected during the Covid-19 emergency and with not enough tools to face the crisis.

Initially, the budget Specchio placed was equal to 200,000 Euros; then, it has been growing thanks to the generosity of our donors: Gruppo Lavazza (200.000), N.N. (50.000), Battaglio SpA (10.000), Acqua Sant'Anna (5.000), Borello Supermercati (4.000), 2A SpA (1.000), Associazione Individua (1.000). Other small donors made us reach 500.000 Euros.

Among the 687 requests received, 500 owned the necessary requirements. On Tuesday, April 6th, 250 small businesses, those who looked to be in greater difficulty, received their 2,000 Euros deposits. Some of them are long-running, such as a glass-maker (1970) or a barber (1973), while a significant percentage has been started in the last 5 years. They are coffee shops, bars, restaurants, barbers, cobblers, booksellers, decorators, touristic guides, ski instructors, photographers and electricians.

Such an initiative repeats a similar interventions started exactly one year ago, always in support of the productive sector. So far, we have helped 700 small enterprises, mainly in Piedmont, for a total of 2.5 million Euros distributed since the beginning of the Covid-19 emergency.
