Save the Florentine Monuments
AKP Project Since 2009
AKP is restoring cultural world treasures in Florence
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 several 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
Go off the beaten path to the 13th-century Basilica of Santissima Annunziata, where you will look in on an ambitious restoration project sponsored by Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy. Accompanied by a member of the small, on-site team of art restorers, visit the Giambologna Chapel, one of the Basilica’s many side chapels. Observe firsthand how restorers bring out the original features of its Renaissance artworks, which might otherwise be lost forever.
