The Thalassaemia International Project
Pavarotti and Friends for the research and treatment against thalassaemia.
The International Thalassaemia Project has always had many friends and supporters from the very beginning.

The Fondazione Berloni founded in Pesaro in order to support and start the project, converging into IME Foundation afterwards, did give a great contribution.

In 1992 the first great Pavarotti and Friends concert was arranged, in favour of the project including Suzanne Vega, Sting, Mike Oldsfied, Lucio Dalla, Bob Geldof, Zucchero and others.

Still, the royalties coming from the CD-Roms sales fund the research and treatment against Thalassaemia, the most widespread mortal genetic disease in the world.

So many friends gathered throughout time to raise funds

Luciano Pavarotti in 1991, Lucio Dalla in 1992, Gianluca Vialli in 1993, Monica Vitti in 1995, Sergio Zavoli in 1996, and Bud Spencer in 1998, José Carreras in 1999 and Valentino Rossi in 2000.
