Patrons of the Arts

The philanthropists of the Vatican Museums

The Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums is a group of people dedicated to preserving the vast and unique collection of art housed in the Vatican Museums.

The patrons have been in existence since 1982 when a major exhibition from the Vatican went to the United States: New York, Chicago and San Francisco.

At that time some interested people began to help us with the restoration of works that left the Vatican for that exhibition. Since then the number of patrons has continued to grow.
