Recognize and support art history’s ‘invisible women’. As we restore each canvas or sculpture, we also reclaim their creators’ forgotten stories. Each art experience is one-of-a-kind. Approved projects are presented and led by a museum director in Florence and carried out by a woman conservator, upon the request of the Foundation. The conservation of art by women is a 365-degree adventure! Become a donor: chose your favorite project below.
