Artevisione is a project realized within the sphere of the Corporate Social Responsibility activities of Sky**. An area that is born from the desire to support concrete projects within the communities in which Sky lives and works, focusing in particular on the younger generations that are the future of the country. Sky follows the same principles that have always guided its presence in the Italian cultural industry and animates the commitment in favor of pluralism of information, of an attentive television to the needs of the little ones, of the cinema enhancement and of the best expressions of Italian art and creativity. This is why the company concentrates its energies on initiatives that can inspire people, supporting sports programs to improve life, aware of the importance of sport in the lives of children; promoting and enhancing art and creativity and helping young Italian talents to emerge; committing itself to raising Media Literacy through a project dedicated to schools; dedicating particular attention to the protection of the environment, through the promotion of virtuous behavior within it and using energy-efficient technologies. To be close to the little ones even in times of difficulty, Sky has equipped the hospitals and the main Italian pediatric departments with packages designed specifically for them. And with the raising funds launched on the occasion of major emergencies, it has supported initiatives able to generate an immediate impact on the life of the communities involved.
