'Love is always mutual,' one of the world's greatest Italian poets Dante once said. Not long ago, we received full support and help from the University of Florence, Italy in teaching and research. The heartwarming slogan was specially written on the box of anti-epidemic masks donating to the University of Florence, Italy to show our love and respect. It also has proved that we always stand together and help each other in difficult and odd times.
On the morning of March 27, we received thanks from Professor Vincenzo, Dean of the School of Architecture of the University of Florence, Italy. On behalf of the School of Architecture of the University of Florence, executive officer Jessica Cruzani, and all teachers and students, he thanked Professor Bao Shidu and all the faculty and staff of Donghua University Environmental Art Design Research Institute for donating 1010 KN95 masks for epidemic prevention.

Since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus in Europe, Professor Bao Shidu has always concerned about the anti-epidemic progress of Florence University, Italy. Their short medical supplies even affected Professor Bao's heart.
Looking back in June 2018, Professor Bao Shidu's visited Italy several times to promote the formal establishment of interschool cooperation between Donghua University and the University of Florence. The University of Florence is one of the most important modern universities in Italy. Professor Vincenzo is a professor of Architecture Technology and Industrial Design at the School of Architecture of the University of Florence, a doctoral tutor, and the Dean of the School of Architecture. Professor Bao Shidu hopes to provide a broader learning platform for the students by promoting academic exchanges.

Professor Bao felt that it was a transfer of love and also a social responsibility. He said that when novel coronavirus epidemic broke out in our country, Italy and other countries provided us with medical supplies. Now that Italy is in the hardest-hit area, we should reach out to help and fight COVID-19 together.
Professor Bao showed his sense of social responsibility and great love with practical actions. He took the lead in donating and called on the whole institute to conduct a cross-border donation. All funds are used to purchase KN95 protective masks for epidemic prevention. The institute also contacted the Consulate General of Italy in Shanghai to help to assure the donation of materials were transported to the University of Florence, Italy promptly.

This batch of epidemic prevention masks contains not only the love of the faculty and staff of the Environmental Art Design Research Institute, but also that of many students. Now we are facing the same difficulty in fighting against the COVID-19. I believe we will help each other and work side by side to tide over the most difficult time.
Come on, Italy! We will finally overcome the epidemic!
