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.

Belgium reduces VAT for purchasing AED
Belgium wants to encourage the purchase of an AED. The government is taking an important step by reducing the VAT from 21 to 6 percent and no longer determines a defibrillator as a luxury product! Belgium now counts 10,000 AEDs compared to the 100,000 from neighbour the Netherlands, which also uses a 6 percent tax rate.
