RESTORED THANKS TO SUPPORT FROM FRIENDS OF FLORENCE
Florence, Italy…The Chapel of St. Nicholas in the Basilica of the Santissima Annunziata has been restored to its original splendor thanks to support from Friends of Florence Foundation and The Giorgi Family Foundation. The project began in October 2021, was completed in January 2023, and formally presented this month with Deputy Mayor and Councillor for Culture Alessia Bettini, Friends of Florence President Simonetta Brandolini d’Adda, and the restoration experts in attendance. This is the most recent project funded by Friends of Florence in the Basilica which dates to the 14th century.
“Another wonderful project restoring an important piece of the city’s inestimable heritage,” said Deputy Mayor Bettini. “As we can see once again from the work performed and the results achieved, these operations are extremely meticulous. They reveal a level of care and commitment which must never flag and which we, as the local authority, cherish immensely. Once again, we thank Friends of Florence which is by our side safeguarding and enhancing the city’s artistic beauty, displaying both love for art and boundless generosity.”
