Art bonus
A tax bonus for those who support culture

Today in Italy there is a new favorable tax regime for those who support culture with charitable donations. It’s called the Art bonus, and it is a tax credit equal to 65 % of charitable contributions that individuals or companies make in favor of public cultural heritage.
The Art bonus is revolutionary for our country, which has a unique cultural heritage.
Now every citizen can contribute to protecting Italy’s cultural heritage, and passing it on to the next generations with this simple gesture.
With a donation, you receive not only a tax advantage but also the pride in taking care of the Italian cultural heritage.

Anyone can become a donor

The tax credit “Art bonus” is granted to individuals, to non-profit organizations and businesses for charitable contributions destined to the following:

– Maintenance, protection and restoration of public cultural works (eg. monuments, historic buildings, works of art);
– Support of public cultural institutions (eg. museums, libraries, archives, archaeological areas and parks), opera/symphonic foundations and traditional theater and other entertainment organizations as required by the law;
– Realisation, restoration and upgrading of facilities of public institutions dedicated to performances.

How to donate
If you have already identified a cultural work to which you would like to contribute, please contact the State Archives of Naples to agree upon the details of money transfer (through a bank, post office, debit or credit and debit cards, bank checks), and save the receipt of the Art bonus transaction to take advantage of the tax benefits.

If you have not yet chosen the cultural work which you would like to support with your contribution, please review the list of projects already published on the website and choose what cultural works you could support.
