ISTITUTO DEGLI INNOCENTI - Piazza della Santissima Annunziata, 12 - Firenze


The Istituto degli Innocenti in Florence has worked uninterruptedly for over six centuries, to help children and families. Founded at the beginning of the fifteenth century, it was the first secular institution dedicated to taking in children.
Today the Institute’s activities include establishing and testing educational and social services, studying the condition of children and promoting children’s rights and culture, in line with the UN Convention on the rights of the child. The commitment to protect children and their rights, updated as culture and society develop, has always been supported by donations from private citizens, associations and companies, confirming a widespread participation in the Institute’s mission.
The institute is located in the old hospital in Piazza della Santissima Annunziata, designed by Filippo Brunelleschi and enriched over time with works by famous artists.
Today this precious historical and monumental complex is the home of the Museo degli Innocenti.
In the city centre of Florence, the Istituto degli Innocenti offers its spaces to host the CWIG Congress, in the beautiful Brunelleschi hall.
Its artistic value will offer an unique atmosphere to the CWIG Annual Meeting 2017!
