Supporting those who take care of the community


Dils firmly believes in giving back value to the community. For us, Give Back is not just a way to act or think – it’s part of our DNA. We’re proud to join the community and support its needs, because we know that our achievements further the well-being of the neighborhoods where we work.

That’s why we support specific projects aiming to make our cities a better place. We believe that in doing so, we can have a positive impact on the community and make a difference in people’s lives.

Besides providing concrete support to local communities, we believe that showcasing the beauty of our cities with stories and unique content about authentic places can add even more value to each place.

This is my Milano, part of our Give Back initiative, will start off in our home base of Milan and will travel to more Italian and European cities. The first stop-off will be Porta Romana, but in the next few months we will also explore Isola, Maggiolina, Lambrate, Monti-Magenta and Scalo Porta Romana.

Our Give Back to the community


We also believe in the importance of supporting those organizations working everyday to make our cities more accessible. We appreciate their valuable activity and want to help. In doing so, we hope to set a good example, restore value and play our part in creating a better future. For us at Dils, social responsibility means supporting art and culture, performing arts, sport, education, the younger generations and the most vulnerable parts of society.
