Christabelle determined to promote the theme of her winning song

During a week dedicated to Brain Awareness Week, Eurovision Song Contest winner Christabelle was invited by the Italian Ambassador Mario Sammartino to his residence at Ta’ Xbiex together with a number of Italian professional experts in the mental health field.

In view of her winning song ‘Taboo’, Christabelle was invited to attend for activities to be held during the week.

The reception was attended by a number of experts specialising in the field including the world-known neurologist Professor Giacomo Rizzolatti.

Professor Rizzolatti was invited to Malta to speak about his work and the results in his field. He related to TVM the importance of creating widespread awareness of the nature of mental illness because all humans should show empathy towards those suffering in silence.

Italian Ambassador Sammartino also speaking to TVM said Malta and Italy are collaborating in the sector to raise awareness supported by members of Italian Professors and Researchers in the Mental Health field at Malta University.
