RESTORATION OF ROME’S ARTISTIC HERITAGE

ART and BEAUTY: Educational and Promotional Projects

Ligamina preserves art as an expression of beauty.
 
Ligamina’s dedication to the arts and to art lovers is manifested in its contributions to the restoration of Rome’s historic center and artistic heritage. It begins with the concept of art as a cultural benefit to be preserved and protected so that everyone can enjoy it now and for years to come. We are thus committed to the preservation and restoration of all that is beautiful, with a particular focus on the artistic beauty of the "Eternal City." By any measure, Rome is of invaluable universal heritage – its art, its philosophy, its historical significance to all of Western civilization - one that can’t afford to be lost or left untended.

The care of Roman art is the goal of various initiatives undertaken to finance their conservation. Ligamina not only promotes the preservation of these great works, it also develops synergies with all participants: restoration experts, art history scholars, donors and local community members are all involved in promoting the artistic heritage of Rome’s historic center. Through innovative and modern events and initiatives we develop a significant public awareness that leads to the involvement of a growing number of people engaged in the restoration.

Ligamina has been entrusted with the care of many works and, thanks to the contribution of many others, these works of art are being restored and their beauty is made eternal.

Indeed, the Ligamina group has been engaged to work on numerous projects designed to expand the appreciation of art and beauty. American students are among the first to be invited to view and study these works as a part of our mission to generate enthusiasm in the new generation. Our Young Talent Program for promising university and high school students was developed so that young scholars can further their education through direct feedback from university and industry experts.

We are currently working on the restoration of Carracci’s The Flagellation of Christ located in the Church of Santa Maria in Monicelli. It is an ambitious project, one that will allow locals and visitors the opportunity to appreciate a significant piece of history for years to come.

To fund the restoration, Ligamina has initiated partnerships, events and programs to attract new donors. Our digital fashion show, created with Samsung and FTL Fashion, is just one example:

Other events were held at the prestigious New York Fashion Weekhttp://www.ligamina.org/news.php?lg=ita&id_news=17
Ligamina has also organized golf tournaments and other high-profile events.

Ligamina develops promotional events to both raise funds for the restoration work and to raise awareness of the cultural value of these projects.
