« These two incidents remind us that no matter how careful you are, the risk is still present – as we are seeing with the increasing number of infections in Europe right now We have checked with the Italian health authorities and we have been informed that any member of our team who was in contact with Valentino until Monday is excluded from direct risk Nevertheless, we will be even more careful from now on to minimize the risk of future problems «
