FAO Art collection itinerary

The Organization also offers an Artworks Collection Itinerary, which showcases FAO’s unique art collection donated by Member Countries, as well as Roman archaeological finds, highlighting the history of FAO’s location, which was once at the heart of ancient Rome.

During the visit, you will admire FAO’s international art collection, such as a Roman bas-relief donated by the President of the Italian Republican and by the City of Rome in 2011, to mark the 60th Anniversary of FAO’s transfer to Rome; bronze sculptures by Italian artist Giò Pomodoro; the painting “Autumn” by Swiss artist Giovanni Giacometti; the sculpture “A seed of wild rice” in cast stainless steel by Japanese artist Tanabe Mitsuaki donated by the French Government; “The Creation” painting donated by Cuban painter Pedro Pablo Oliva, among many others.
