At the Italian Grand Prix, the latest in Bahrain's campaign of messages is "Drugs Don't Win". San Patrignano (based near Rimini, Italy) is a therapeutic community for drug addicts and is Europe's largest drug rehabilitation facility.

Since its founding in 1978 by the late Vincenzo Muccioli, it has opened its doors to over 18,000 young men and women. In the twenty six years since its inception, the community's mission has been to welcome drug addicts in need of a recovery program regardless of social standing, and political or religious orientation.

The community offers its services completely free of charge to its guests, and does not accept donations from guests' families. It receives no public funds.

Andrea Muccioli, chairman of the community, said, "Formula 1 racing is a sport with many young people among its millions of fans. The decision made by Jordan and Prince Salman of Bahrain will help us further spread a strong message against drug abuse throughout the world. We wish to thank them with all our hearts."
