FAI - Fondo per l'Ambiente Italiano ETS is a major organization that has been looking after the great Italian historical, artistic, and landscape heritage, a unique world treasure, since 1975. It is now tradition for hundreds of thousands of citizens to discover special places of history, art, and nature on FAI Spring and Fall Days, hidden or little-known wonders located everywhere in Italy.
Made in San Patrignano craftsmanship makes its first-time appearance this year, thanks to its great social value in the broader sense. As it offers many young people the opportunity to learn a trade and build a future, the San Patrignano community supports and protects ancient and endangered trades, reinventing them with a contemporary style. Leather, cashmere, silk, and other noble materials are used, just to name a few, but also recovered and recycled objects. Because manual work teaches that everything can come back to life.
