MILAN AND AGORDO, ITALY, September 16, 2020-

Luxottica and Fameccanica (Angelini Group) today [September 9, 2020] announced the stable and large-scale start of production of surgical masks and the delivery of the first batch of over 3.5 million devices for the prevention of COVID-19, as part of the internal procurement plan launched in May by the Italian Government and coordinated by the Extraordinary Commissioner for Emergency Domenico Arcuri.

In order to respond adequately and on time to the Government's call, Luxottica has temporarily converted the PalaLuxottica - a center of aggregation and socio-cultural events for the area before the pandemic, close to the Group's historic headquarters in Agordo (BL), at the foot of the Dolomites - into a technologically advanced outpost for the production of face masks, for the benefit of the community.
