Save Venice Fund Donation drive

COMITES Los Angeles,

assieme all’Associazione “Save Venice”, l’Ambasciata d’Italia a Washington ha avviato una campagna di solidarieta’ per Venezia, che come sapete è stata colpita da una inondazione che ha gravemente danneggiato parte del suo patrimonio artistico e culturale.

Savevenice.org e’ una associazione americana nonprofit interamente dedicata alla tutela del patrimonio artistico e culturale di Venezia dal 1971. Negli anni, questa associazione ha promosso il restauro di oltre 500 opere.

L’idea e’ quella di dare maggiore diffusione possibile a questa iniziativa, che permette tra l’altro di fare donazioni completamente tax deductible.

Noi stiamo pubblicando l’allegato materiale sui nostri social. Sarebbe bello che l’iniziativa diventasse virale, anche perche’ qui a LA (complice anche il Festival cinematografico) la citta’ di Venezia è molto amata da tutti.

grazie per quanto potrete fare per darne diffusione attraverso i vostri canali. L’ashtag è #AmericaLovesVenice.
