As part of “The Medici’s philanthropic art collection” these art works will be exposed around the world in permanent and temporary exhibitions to attract global attention to this rare combination of human values, human rights awareness and Art. The project also foresees the development of educational and political programs to foster concrete action to defend human rights and implement human values.
