The Fondo per l'Ambiente Italiano (FAI) is the National Trust of Italy.

The organisation was established in 1975 on the model of the British National Trust. It is a private non-profit organisation and has 60,000 members as of early 2005. Its purpose is to protect elements of Italy's physical heritage which might otherwise be lost.

Properties[edit]

As of early 2007 the organisation had twenty-two properties including castles, gardens, monastic buildings and other cultural assets. These are spread throughout Italy, but the majority are in the north of the country.

This list is complete and up-to-date as of 2 May 2007.
