Art and culture are an essential element of the set of values of the Prada Group. The desire to safeguard the artistic heritage, repository of our cultural background, inspired the collaboration between the Prada Group and FAI - Fondo Ambiente Italiano: a series of artwork restorations conceived to enhance Italian artistic heritage.
FAI - Fondo Ambiente Italiano is a national non-profit foundation born in 1975 to preserve and promote natural, historic and artistic heritage. During the past few years, FAI - Fondo Ambiente Italiano has protected, restored and opened to the public important sites that embody Italian artistic and natural heritage.
The natural collaboration comes to life every time Prada inaugurates a new boutique in an Italian city. Here, FAI - Fondo Ambiente Italiano partners with the Group for a restoration aimed to open a dialogue with the local community.
Among the most significant restorations, Vasari’s Last Supper in Florence, the statues of the Academy of Fine Arts, the arcades of the Archiginnasio in Bologna, and the creation of the new theatre curtains of Turin’s Teatro Regio.
