take care of Florence!
The nonprofit Foundation Angeli del Bello, founded in 2010 and operating in Florence for 13 years, now counts more than 3,000 volunteers who gather daily in different areas of the city to take care of public gardens and parks, remove stickers and graffiti, or pick up tons of plastic and trash from the streets.
Their motto? Promoting and coordinating volunteer projects aimed at improving urban decorum and active citizenship! Indeed, the Foundation also carries out social inclusion projects and generally works to spread the culture of environmental awareness, integration and volunteerism.
