Friends of FAI is an American nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster in the United States a deeper appreciation of and support for the preservation of buildings and properties of architectural and environmental significance located in the Republic of Italy. Friends of FAI recognizes the artistic, architectural, historical and environmental heritage of Italy as an international resource of priceless value.

Friends of FAI supports the programs and activities of FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano), one of Italy’s leading nonprofit organizations, in its efforts to restore, preserve and open to the public a wealth of important Italian monuments and properties, as part of our broader objectives.

Friends of FAI organizes numerous events, including conferences, seminars, exhibitions, and concerts in the United States, and tours in Italy, to spread understanding of and appreciation for Italian culture.

Friends of FAI invites Americans to visit Italy and discover the precious treasurers rescued by FAI.
