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

The organisation was established in 1975 on the model of the National Trust of England, Wales, & Northern Ireland. 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.
