Preservation Projects at San Miniato al Monte, Florence

Friends of Florence is working on the restoration of elements of a church in Florence: San Miniato. Various Board members from FOF have elected to fund a restoration of an element.

The Basilica of San Miniato al Monte is situated on one of Florence’s highest hills, and has been described as the finest Romanesque structure in Tuscany, and one of the most beautiful churches in Italy. The Basilica was founded in 1018 and will celebrate its 1000th anniversary in 2018. Coinciding with Friends of Florence’s 20th anniversary,  work has begun to commence restoration of various elements from the Basilica’s interior, some of which are shown below:
