62 butcher shops in Florence and its province (many in Chianti), will participate in a day of solidarity for the ANT Foundation on Saturday, March 25.

“Participate with your butcher and you will perform a gesture of solidarity. Your butcher guarantees quality. You can trust him”. This is the claim for the 10th edition of the “Giornata dei Macellai ANT 2017”.

The event combines some of the specialties of the Florentine territory. On one side there are two associations, the association Macellai-Cesec of Florence and province and Agiva Federcarni of Valdarno.

On the other, there is the ANT foundation, which assists, at home and free of charge, those who have cancer. It also offers cancer prevention projects, always free of charge. As in past editions, all of those who go to a store which participates in the event can donate a part of the proceeds to the ANT Foundation. You can consult the site for participating butchers:


“Florentine butchers have supported the ANT Foundation for many years and are very proud to have contributed to the work that the ANT does daily in favor of the many suffering from tumors”, says Vasco Tacconi, ‘Gran Maestro dell’arte dei Beccai fiorentini’, and historic figure of the butchers’ association.

All of the proceeds collected will support the activities that the ANT performs in Florence, Prato and Pistoia. The health structure of the ANT in the Tuscan region is made up of 9 doctors, 6 nurses and 3 phychologists.
