Our partner RCP Planet succeeded again in making a landmark in Pisa a heart safe place. The museum Palazzo Blu is equipped with a HeartSine AED and a Rotaid AED cabinet. This is established in cooperation with Maurizio Cecchini of the foundation Cecchini Cuore.
About the museum
The Palazzo Blu is organising exhibitions and shows art collections to make them available to the public in Pisa’s heart. It is a historical landmark in Pisa and the only blue building in town.
It has been restored and it now hosts art shows from very famous painters (for example Kandinsky, Modigliani, Tolouse Lautrec, Chagal and Mirò). Since the start of art shows in 2008, Palazzo Blu already welcomed more than 500,000 visitors.

A small country with a big heart!
The Dutch Heart Association (Hartstichting) announced today it reached its goal of 170.000 registered lay responders. These 170.000 represent 1% of the Dutch population and make the Netherlands the first country in the world with such a large national network of responders. Next to the repsonders, the association also encouraged AED owners in making their device accessible 24 hours a day, resulting in over 1400 new Public Access Defibrillators. Rotaid is very proud to be part of this great project and achievement. Together with the Dutch Heart Association we remain committed to further enlarge the amount of lay responders and accessible defibrillators in the Netherlands.
