Visits inside the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella
Ars et Fides Florence is an association of volunteer guides, founded in the Tuscan capital in the mid-1990s.
It is part of an international federation founded in Belgium in 1984 that brings together about fifty other associations, located in seven different European countries.
All these realities have as their point of reference the same document, the Angers Charter drafted in 1988. Recognizing themselves in it, the members of the associations strive to welcome visitors entering sacred buildings by illustrating the religious place on three levels: historical,architectural-artistic and religious. This last level is the key element of contact with Ars et Fides volunteers.
