Saving an abandoned jewel in Tuscany

Friends of San Filippino is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with one big, audacious overall mission and a specific project that embodies that mission.

Our overall mission is to help create a movement and a model for ordinary people based in the United States who want to start a non-profit organization to restore an important place and help revitalize an amazing small town anywhere in Italy.

The specific project that we’re obsessed with is the restoration of San Filippino, a beautiful little 17th century baroque chapel located in Castiglion Fiorentino, Tuscany, Italy. In addition to restoring the building itself, we want to re-establish the chapel's associated common areas and apartments as places where pilgrims, priests, scholars, business leaders, artists, and people of all walks of life can gather to learn and share and help one another.

We hope that the restored chapel will make a significant contribution to the economic and cultural life of Castiglion Fiorentino, one of the loveliest hill towns in all of Tuscany.

Should you decide to help with our mission, we know that you will be rewarded in many ways.

Together, we can make this happen!
