ADOPT A PAINTING!
A farmer can never stop fixing fences, and a museum can never stop restoring the paintings in its care – in fact, taking care of the paintings is a museum’s first responsibility.
The Brera has an open conservation laboratory, and four full-time restorers, but even so, many paintings still need attention by external specialists. This work costs money the museum does not have. We ask you to adopt a painting, and cover the costs of its restoration (there are three options: $5,000, $15,000 and $30,000). Every restoration will be recognized by a credit on the label when the work is on display.
If you want to enjoy tax deductibility in America, you can make your donation to the American Friends of Brera (hosted by the King Baudouin Foundation). If you want to receive the Art Bonus in Italy, the donation can be made directly to the Pinacoteca di Brera.

The Art Bonus program provides for income-tax deductions of up to 65% of sums donated to support Italy’s state-owned cultural heritage.
In accordance with Art. 1 of D.L. 31.5.2014, no. 83, “Urgent measures for the preservation of the cultural heritage, the development of culture and promoting tourism,” converted into law with amendments, as Law no. 106 of 29/07/2014, a tax credit was introduced for cash donations in support of culture and the performing arts, known as the Art Bonus, so encouraging individuals to foster the nation’s cultural heritage more effectively.
Whoever makes a cash donation in support of culture under the law can benefit from a substantial tax break in the shape of a tax credit.
