22nd FAI Spring Day in Veneto
to discover the best cultural sites in Veneto exceptionally open to the public for this important event
From 22 March 2014 to 23 March 2014
The Giornata FAI di Primavera 2014 in Veneto is nearly here. The historical FAI event promoted by the Fondo Ambiente Italiano FAI in Veneto returns on 22 and 23 March! On this page you will find all the events of the Fondo Ambiente in Veneto and a list of beautiful places to visit during the 22ndFAI Spring Day in 2014.
Promoted by Fondo Ambiente FAI, the days offer the opportunity to learn about historic buildings and natural sites throughout Italy. For the 22nd edition - Giornata FAI di Primavera in 2014 - more than 750 places will open their doors: parks, monuments, churches, palaces, villas, gardens, most of which are often closed to the public and can only be visited during special FAI events.
The Fondo Ambiente Giornata di Primavera aims to bring Italians to the Fondo Ambiente Italiano, a non-profit foundation established in 1975 to preserve and enhance important examples of natural and artistic heritage of our country. Many of these valuable sites will be open to the public during the giornata FAI 2014 with visits and events, free or available for a small contribution to help the Fondo Ambiente Italiano and towards the maintenance of the places under its 'protection'.
Since 1993, the giornata FAI di primavera have enabled millions of Italians to learn about the priceless places, that were abandoned for years and which have now been brought back to life thanks to the work of FAI: the 22nd Giornata FAI Primavera will show some of the most fascinating and authentic sides of our beautiful country!
Following the success of previous editions of giornata FAI in Veneto, 2014 proposes the 'Cicero Apprentices' project: many of the scheduled visits will be held by students as tour guides for a day.
