This is in response to the recent flooding which plagued the better part of Italy.

Lamborghini is also supporting the people affected by the flooding in Emilia-Romagna, with a donation of 1 million Euros.

The company has responded to the terrible events devastating the region in recent days by joining "Un aiuto per l'Emilia-Romagna," the fundraiser promoted by the Agency for Territorial Security and Civil Protection.

The funds will be donated, with the coordination of local authorities, to support affected communities, with a special focus on environmental recovery projects due to hydrogeological instability.

The company has taken the decision to cancel its 60th-anniversary celebrations that were to be held from 24 to 28 May.

The 60th Anniversary Giro Event, scheduled to start in Piazza del Popolo in Rome and finish in Piazza Maggiore in Bologna, has been cancelled, along with all related activities.

Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini said, "Automobili Lamborghini has always been attentive and sensitive to the territory in which we operate. Through this concrete gesture, we express our solidarity and closeness to the communities affected by this environmental emergency."
