The National Academy of San Luca, due to the extremely serious situation in which the country is facing, launches the #DaiUnSegno fundraising campaign in favor of Civil Protection. More than 100 Italian artists and architects donate their own work, aware that one of the main commitments of art must be the care of the present. These works will be drawn among those who have paid at least a fee of 50 euros, by and no later than 1 May 2020, by bank transfer to:

Accademia Nazionale di San Luca
IBAN  IT52K 01030 03200 00000 9007632
specifying name, surname, phone nr. or e-mail
reason: #DaiUnSegno

The purchase of multiple shares widens the possibility of being among the drawn lots.
