The money will go to three hospitals in Milan, one in Rome, and the Civil Protection Agency.

The donation has been given amid reports the health system in the Lombardy region is "a step away from collapse", with intensive care facilities struggling to cope with the huge influx of patients, and supplies diminishing as a result.

Italy has been placed on lockdown, with the public required to show a genuine need to travel outside the areas where they live, in a bid to contain the virus.

Schools, universities, theaters, cinemas, and nightclubs fave been closed and restaurants and bars are only permitted to open between 6am and 6pm.

Most Armani employees are working from home, while production sites are operating with a skeleton staff.

Last month, the fashion house livestreamed their Milan Fashion Week show after taking the decision not to have an audience in a bid to help curb the spread of the virus.
