25th and 26th March: FAI Giornate di Primavera
25th and 26th March is the FAI Giornate di Primavera.
The FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano) is an organization aimed at protecting cultural heritage. Every year spring is ushered in by the FAI Giornate di Primavera: a weekend of special openings. Hundreds of monuments and venues in 400 places around Italy, rarely open to the public, welcome visitors, with many offering free guided visits. Donations are welcome.
Florence venues this year include the English Cemetery and Palazzo Valori Altoviti, among others.
