La Grande Via is the association founded by Franco Berrino and Enrica Bortolazzi with the purpose of fostering initiatives aimed at promoting health, well-being and longevity, at preventing chronic diseases and rapid body aging, and at helping to restore a state of health in patients who have been affected by chronic diseases associated with unhealthy lifestyles. Scientific progress in the treatment of infectious chronic diseases has led to an extended life expectancy, but this comes at a high price. Both men and women live longer, but they are plagued by a long list of debilitating chronic degenerative diseases that heavily affect the quality of their lives.
