Automobili Lamborghini is converting departments of its super sports car production plant in Sant'Agata Bolognese in order to produce surgical masks and protective plexiglass face shields.

The masks will be donated to the Sant'Orsola-Malpighi Hospital in Bologna, Italy, to be used in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The saddlery department has been converted to produce surgical masks for donation
Work on this initiative will be carried out by the personnel of the saddlery that produces the interiors and specialty customisation for Lamborghini cars, producing 1,000 masks a day. The medical shields will be produced at a rate of 200 units a day, using 3D printers within the carbon fibre production plant and the Research and Development department.

The activity has been approved and supported by the Emilia-Romagna Region, and is taking place in collaboration with the University of Bologna. The Department of Medical and Surgical Sciences will oversee validation testing of the medical devices made by Lamborghini, prior to their delivery to the hospital.

As a sign of unity and support for the entire nation facing the Coronavirus emergency, every evening Lamborghini lights up the historic headquarter buildings in Sant'Agata Bolognese, with the colours of the Italian flag.
