Europa Uomo’s Italian member organisation, Europa Uomo Italia Onlus, has promoted the country’s first prostate cancer information campaign, named Blue November.
Educational initiatives promoting men’s health were held throughout Italy during November, raising awareness of the risk of prostate cancer and providing information on how to address it. The campaign focused on information about alternative therapies, the importance of a multidisciplinary approach and the benefits of innovative surgical techniques.
To mark the month, museums all over Italy shone blue lights on significant nude statues of men from Italy’s artistic heritage. Events were held in partnership with the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities.
