This year as never before, after months spent indoors, people have felt like going out and spending a day in the open air, in contact with nature and art, discovering nearby and often little-known places that deserve a trip or a short holiday.
Thus, FAI properties extend their opening hours in order to welcome more people, in complete safety, and to offer a different experience: continuing the visit until sunset and beyond and thus enjoying a special atmosphere, slow time and special initiatives.
The events proposed this year reflect our growing commitment to the dissemination of a “culture of nature”. The aim is to promote the knowledge of the green heritage (from botany to the history of gardens and the Italian rural landscape). which FAI takes care of.
Come and experience a whole day immersed in nature: you can walk barefoot in a forest; read in the open air; take part in a guided exploration to learn to recognise trees, fruit plants and insects; go in search of fireflies; listen to the sounds of the forest and recognise birdsong. And more: picnics on the lawn at sunset, aperitifs in the shade of hundred-year-old trees or in the loggia; small concerts, short astronomy lessons, trekking and guided walks to discover undiscovered corners of Italy full of the beauty that surrounds our properties.
Sere FAI d’Estate (FAI Summer Evenings) are made possible thanks to the fundamental support of Ferrarelle, partner of the institutional events and official water of FAI; to the significant contribution of Nespresso, the company that has been supporting the Trust since 2020; to Delicius, which renews its support to FAI by joining the project for the first time; and to Pirelli, which confirms for the ninth consecutive year its historic closeness to FAI.
Finally, we would like to thank Rai, FAI’s Main Media Partner.
