Trusts & Foundations

The Friends of the Bargello is set up to work in close collaboration with charitable trusts and foundations to deliver impactful and meaningful projects across key long-term purposeful and imperative campaigns.

Initial areas that the FoB would target the support of Trusts and Foundations;

  • Photographic Campaign; a crucial and foundational campaign which sets out to professionally photograph the collections of the Bargello.
  • Digitalisation; this vital campaign runs in tandem to the photographic campaign, as it sets out to organise the image library digitally for use in museum publications and in order to make the Bargello’s important holdings accessible worldwide via the internet; setting the museum on a stage deserving of the collections and in line with other museums of equal importance.
  • Museology; this long term capitol campaign is committed to improving the visitor experience at the Bargello in all areas of display, conservation and didactics.

These key areas are crucial to The Friends of the Bargello’s aim to raise public awareness of the Bargello and to finally establish a recognisable and deserving visual profile for the museum.
