Knowledge is a crucial weapon to beat cancer, and AIRC knows it well.

Over the years, we have been increasingly communicating the results achieved by research, as soon as laboratories made new data available.
AIRC’s communication activities include the dissemination of scientific results and awareness raising projects, focused on prevention, as well as the promotion of fund-raising campaigns and schools projects. They are conveyed through our own channels and through the external media that generously support AIRC.
A fundamental magazine
“Fondamentale” is one of the most authoritative Italian publications in the field of oncological research for the lay public; it brings AIRC’s voice into the homes of supporters and serves as the ambassador of our mission to make cancer ever more curable. The marriage of scientific accuracy with an easy and informative language makes it an irreplaceable tool to convey reliable oncological information on the progress of research and the importance of prevention, divulging the latest on diagnosys and therapy.
AIRC school projects
We need the help of everybody to make cancer more and more treatable.


Porticos or the beach, shopping or little restaurants, art and culture, sport or relax. In the heart of Tigullio there are so many opportunities!
Chiavari is a splendid place. With its medieval historic area and its nineteenth-century porticos it opens up panoramic views of incomparable beauty. It is an old one that can boast of buildings of great merit in typical Genoese style and has developed a tourist vocation, thanks to the recent big Tourist Harbour and clean sea, the holder of a Blue Flag since 1987. Its historic area is the so-called “caruggio dritto”, that is to say Via Martiri della Liberazione, dotted with shops, restaurants and trattorias, some of which specialize in the famous farinata (chickpea flat bread).
