Become a Friend of St. Petronio
The “Amici di san Petronio” (Friends of st. Petronio) Association derives from the ancient “Prima Unione dei Devoti di San Petronio”( First Union of the devoted to St. Petronio), founded in the beginning of the eighteenth century.
Its purpose is to help to better acknowlegde people regarding the figure of the Patron Saint and the Basilica dedicated to him. The perspectives of commitment for the Association are those of culture, history, art and liturgy.
In particular, today, the “Amici” (Friends) have an important task in addition to these: to deliver to the new generations in all their beauty the wonderful heritage of art and culture that the Basilica represents, supporting its restoration.
Friends of st. Petronio can live closely and personally this exclusive and exciting experience that is a sign of faith, of love for the city, of trust and hope for the future.
