Valuing beauty

Good news for those who have a weakness for historical dwellings and beauties that are part of the National Trust. FAI – Fondo Ambiente Italiano (the Italian National Trust) has launched new online projects enabling visitors to virtually enjoy tours of the most important properties part of the FAI without leaving their homes.  As part of the #Italiamimanchi online project, strolling through magnificent gardens dotted by rare and exotic plants, visiting centuries-old castles and villas, as well as discovering the anecdotes connected to the object hosted in the various dwelling is now possible thanks to live streamings. Tours are held by Mr. Marco Magnifico, FAI’s Executive Vice President and can be seen on the official FAI account on Facebook, Instagram and on the official YouTube channel.

To satisfy each and every desire for knowledge of visitors, FAI has created various sections part of the #Italiamimanchi initiative.  “Piccoli oggetti, grandi storie”,  for example, provides close-ups of objects nestled in period dwellings and highlights on their history; “La prima volta a…”, includes narrations and memories of Marco Magnifico’s first visit to various properties, while “Ricette d’autore”, enables a full immersion in the culinary tradition of the region and area hosting the selected property. Other sections such as “Racconti in giardino”, “Un giro a…” and many others provide a specific focus on plants and the way they are preserved by gardeners and Property Managers, as well as 5-minute virtual tours of the selected property.
