The Istituto degli Innocenti of Florence is one of the oldest public institutions in Italy dedicated to the care, upbringing and protection of children. It was founded in the 15th century to care for abandoned children, thanks to a bequest by Francesco Datini, to which the funds of other merchants were added, under the patronage of the Arte della seta (Silk Guild) of Por Santa Maria and its construction was entrusted to Filippo Brunelleschi. Since 5 February 1445, the day it welcomed little Agata Smeralda, the Institute has worked ceaselessly to defend and promote the active rights of children and adolescents according to the Convention on the Rights of the Child adopted in New York on 20 November 1989. Today the Istituto degli Innocenti is a Public Sector Company providing Care Services (ASP): at a time of great and strong cultural, social and, not least, economic changes, it contributes in building a society capable of developing the potential of all its citizens, starting with the youngest ones, through policies combining opportunities, equity and inclusion


Florence, better known as “The Jewel of the Renaissance”, is one of the most fascinating bucket list destinations in Italy. Bordered to the northeast by the Apennine Mountain range and to the south by the gentle hills of Chianti, Firenze is a symbol of beauty recognized worldwide. Cradle of art, architecture as well as emblematic landmarks, the city has been praised by the greatest Italian and foreign poets who deeply admired its wonders and peculiarities. Each day the city welcomes tourists from all over the world who desire to live a 360-degree experience, from guided tours to gastronomic tastings. For real foodies it represents the perfect place where to savour the delectable Tuscan cuisine, comfortably seated in local trattorias. The art of craftsmanship is another great source of pride for all the citizens since you can still find painters and artists at work in many artisan workshops. For those who love walking, wander around the glamorous haute couture window stores or the countless green spaces, both in the historic center and in the nearby suburbs, in which to relax, spend pleasant moments and even attend live concerts.
