Founded in 1993 to support the museum after a terrible bombing, Amici degli Uffizi onlus
is a private, independent, no-profit association whose mission is to employ all the funds raised
for the protection, conservation and restoration of the Uffizi Gallery collections, for the promotion
of its cultural and educational activities, and for the encouragement of public awareness
and appreciation through orientation services to assist members and visitors that wish to enjoy this
unique artistic heritage.
Since 2006 the Association is supported by the 501(c)(3) nonprofit American sister-organization
