The Association of International Private Committees for the Safeguarding of Venice

Is a federation of  non profit organizations, whose main purpose is to promote and finance restorations of Venice artistic heritage. Moreover, they exert a constant  watch  on its  artistic, urban and natural heritage and intervene, either directly or through international media, in order to prevent potentially harmful initiatives. They also grant scholarships and finance scientific activities in the field of restoration, and undertake fund-raising promotional activities.
The initiatives promoted and financed by the Committees   since 1966 to date have made possible  about 1,000 restorations regarding artifacts, publicly owned, belonging to the historical and artistic heritage  of the lagoon City.
