The Harvard University Center at Villa I Tatti only exists thanks to the generosity of many benefactors, starting with Bernard Berenson who bequeathed his estate in Florence to his alma mater upon his death in 1959. I Tatti continues to rely heavily on generous contributions from individuals, foundations, and corporations, and we are very grateful to all those who understand the importance of the humanities and choose to foster Renaissance scholarship at our unique institution.
