Adrian Galliani held a press conference to discuss Monza’s initiative to fight and prevent violence against women. “The Serie A league will carry out initiatives related to the fight against violence against women. The match against Torino will be a high-visibility game and we thought it was the right opportunity to talk about it,” said Galliani. The team’s sponsor Motorola will remove its logo to display the meaningful phrase. “The league said yes, it seems like an act of great social responsibility. The players have responded positively because they are good guys. All generous, it is a beautiful group where they do good off the field as well as on the green rectangle,” Galliani added.
He also attributed the credit for this initiative to Motorola and emphasized that the club is not trying to be a model for anyone. “Silvio Berlusconi and I have tried to choose certain people and educate them and pass on certain values. The message is in our shirt: ‘He was the man of my dreams, now he’s my nightmare’. Millions of people will see this game and this message will be conveyed,” he said.
Galliani further expressed his concern about the issue of femicide. “I feel this thing a lot because I read too much about femicides. It is something aberrant,” he said. The initiative is an important step in highlighting and tackling the issue of violence against women.
