for St. Francis

Our crowdfunding campaign

“Together for St. Francis”, the project that intends to create a network to safeguard and promote the Lower Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi, launched by the Foundation for the Basilica of San Francesco, the non-profit foundation that supports the religious and cultural heritage of the architectural complex of Assisi and LoveItaly, non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring a future for Italy’s cultural heritage, established by LVenture Group.

The project aims to network and mobilize the entire community in order to be able to carry out, by a crowdfunding campaign, the urgent conservation work of the west wing of the Giotto vault above the altar of the lower church of the Basilica, in particular the central part of the "vela" where is frescoed the figure of St. Francis in the glory of heaven.
