an urban volunteer project …for the care of Florence
Angeli del Bello are now very well known. They represent a landmark in the city for everything related to the care of common areas. There are 1500 volunteers, in 2010 they have allowed the appeal of the institutions to take care of the city. More than 50 people every day are in the street, parks and gardens. They are individuals, associations, organizations, communities and schools but also foreign schools and high schools sharing a passion for Florence. They also are companies that thrive on tourism and that they found in the Foundation the way to take care of the primary object of their business.

Angel is as Angel does*
Being an Angel means being in love with Firenze
It means respecting yourself and others, it means helping the city, it means leaving a mark, something immediately recognizable
Beauty is RESPECT, HARMONY and LOVE: this is our challenge and our purpose
