The Coronavirus emergency is bringing Italy to its knees. But among all the big cities in our country, there's one that, numbers on hand, is among the hardest hit by the virus: Bergamo. The disconcerting images of military trucks transporting the bodies of the deceased to other regions to be cremated were shown worldwide, and even the city's mayor, Giorgio Gori, admitted the great difficulties that both the city and its hospital facilities are dealing with.
In all this, there are obviously those who are trying to help, and among these is also Marco Barnabò, team manager of the Barni Racing Team, who has decided to make his workshop in Calvenzano, on the outskirts of Bergamo, available to all operators who are fighting against the Coronavirus on the front line. Doctors, nurses, and volunteers who use motorcycles to get around can ask an exceptional mechanic for help.
The following was written on the Barni Racing Team website: "The province of Bergamo remains one of the areas most affected by the Coronavirus, so I decided that, in compliance with all the requirements of the Lombardy Region and the Government, I will put the workshop at the service of all those who work on the front lines and are dealing with the emergency. Doctors, nurses, and volunteers who travel by motorcycle and need mechanical assistance can reach me in via Venezia 1, in Calvenzano (BG). Access to the public is limited, in order to respect social distancing rules, but my business is still open, even if my collaborators are forced to stay home. I see a great effort on behalf of the whole population to overcome this difficult moment, and I also want to do my part. The workshop is available to facilitate those moving around on two wheels and who are putting their professionalism at the service of others."
