AKP is restoring cultural world treasures in Florence

Overview

There is a global effort underway to help restore the monuments that are the cultural heritage of Florence and are regarded as world treasures. AKP has been an active part of this global effort for the past seven years. Currently, our support is directed to The Chapel of the Madonna of Giambologna, an artistic gem of the Renaissance period in Santissima Annunziata (Church of the Annunciation). This church is considered one of the top must-see churches in Florence.

Visit this Project

While exploring Florence, take a short tour of the beautiful church of Santissima Annunziata, paying particular attention to the chapel where AKP supports restoration work. AKP has been supporting restoration work at the church for three years, with remarkable results being achieved by the master craftsmen in charge. When crossing the famous Ponte Vecchio, study the bust of Benvenuto Cellini, another prominent monument restored with AKP guest contributions.
