Save Venice

The New York City-headquartered nonprofit organization seeks to preserve the treasured artistic and cultural heritage of Venice, Italy.

Conserving Venice's Cultural Patrimony

Save Venice

In 1966, formidable floods in Venice led to widespread damage. In response, the United Nations Education, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) established more than 30 committees to preserve Venice's rich cultural heritage, including the Venice Committee of the International Fund for Monuments. In 1971, this committee became the independent nonprofit organization Save Venice. In the decades since, Save Venice has underwritten the restoration of more than 500 significant works, sites, and spaces. Beyond this direct conservation work, Save Venice advances Venetian scholarship and research by funding fellowships, publications, and exhibitions. In 2015, Save Venice opened the Rosand Library & Study Center, a Venice-based space for the public to generate, access, and disseminate knowledge around issues of conservation and restoration.
