During the week, the Italian Embassy will run a fundraising campaign known as ‘Kampala per Grisciano’ in favour of Grisciano which will be in favour of a medieval village, hometown of ”Pasta alla gricia”, a town that was heavily damaged by the earthquake that struck Central Italy on August 24. The funds will be channeled through the association “Amici di Grisciano” “Friends of Grisciano” towards reconstruction projects in the said city.
