The Centro Associazioni Culturali Fiorentine began in Florence in 1996 with a project by Raffaello Torricelli to develop and strengthen coordination between associations working in the field of culture in Florence and its surrounding area.
It is a non-profit organisation aimed at making an important cultural and social contribution to the knowledge and preservation of a priceless human heritage.
There are currently 30 member associations.

As part of its coordination of activities for its member associations, the Centro Associazioni Culturali Fiorentine:

  • promotes awareness of the cultural activities of the various associations;
  • promotes events of common interest to its member associations;
  • supports the needs expressed by its member associations in regard to public institutions in order to obtain necessary provisions;
  • promotes computerised systems in the field of culture in sectors in which the member associations are involved.

Its further objectives are:

  • to promote the knowledge, protection and promotion of artistic and cultural heritage through the organisation of various types of cultural activities and events;
  • to contribute to increasing public awareness of and participation in issues affecting cultural assets, by means that include debates and conferences;
  • to foster cultural exchange and knowledge of different cultures;
  • to promote scholarships on topics of particular interest.
