Support our Annual Project

Every year, Friends of FAI chooses a FAI property to support.  From abbeys to palaces to natural landscapes, these properties embody the diverse beauty that Italy has to offer. 

Over the years, Friends of FAI members and supporters have given over 8 million dollars towards the restoration of properties in Italy.
