      I'm happy we have reached the final goal, and i'm proud to be a part of this restoration. As an Italian, Santa Croce is an important place for my heart and my soul, and now my soul smiles at the moon...

      Thanks to a certain game company for allowing me to learn a little about an area outside my home country US and giving me the chance to help a little

    20. Ares Games on

      It's great that the project funded, and if we reach $ 105,000 we will also have funded the restoration of those beautiful, 700-years old doors. Let's do it!

    21. Alexp on

      A little more than 2000 dollars to the stretch goal of getting the wooden doors restored, too... Let's try to reach it, with a tweet or Facebook post to let our friends know!

      It is great to be a part of this adventure and imagining what could be my feelings in a few months from now, walking under the restored porch of Cappella Pazzi.

      Funded! I'm learning Italian! Congratulations and thanks for letting us be a small part of this beautiful location's history.

    27. Alexandra Korey on

      I am so excited! Looks like the project is getting VERRRY close to its goal!!!

    28. Opera di Santa Croce Creator on

      Thank you @Matthew Pyle - we are thrilled too about the corporate donor! For privacy reasons we can't reveal who it is until the campaign is over and they put their logo on the scaffolding :)

      Thank you @MiGarba and @VisitFlorence for your wonderful support.

      And @MarcoBadiani with whom it has been a pleasure to work :)

      @Carlos we are happy that you had a great visit, and hope to see you again soon at Santa Croce!

    29. Marco Badiani on

      #Crazyforpazzi has been an exciting adventure and it has been an honour to be part of the great group of people who launched this project on KS. I get goosebumps just thinking of all the amazing moments I have experienced while being involved in this project. Just a few dollars missing. Let's make it reality.

    30. MiGarba on

      We are thrilled to be part of this wonderful campaign and to have brought it a bit closer to the final goal. As a Tuscan company recently embarked on an adventure in the USA, we love the idea that something digital can give people even far away a "taste" of our territory.

    31. Matthew Pyle

      That is awesome. Which corporation jumped on board? They put us very close to the goal.

    32. Protocol Games on

      I was lucky enough to be there this September. Let's do this, friends :).

      Glad you like the infographic! 7 intense days to go!

    34. Visit Florence on

      The infographic is great! We're glad to be a part of this campaign and hope the goal is reached, there's one more week to go.

    35. Helen Farrell on

      It seems most of Florence is #CrazyforPazzi. It's the word on the street and among Florentines, journalists and expats. The art team at The Florentine made this fun and fabulous infographic about the campaign, Saving History for the Cost of a Cupcake. Let's all keep spreading the word and make this wonderful loggia restoration happen!

      See the infographic:…

      Happy to be the 500th backer. I feel I am in very good company with all the other 499 ones.
      Such an important project both for the goal and the great activities around it (tours, tweetchats, improv opera...).

    37. Opera di Santa Croce Creator on

      Response to Kathleen Comerford: Thank you being so kind to spread the word about out fundraiser. It is people like you that make a difference and it will be thanks to you if we manage to reach our goal!!

      Opera di Santa Croce is registered as a non profit organization (ONLUS) in Italy and NOT in the United States. We would be happy to issue an official receipt for your generous donation, if this can be of help to you.

    38. Alexandra Korey on

      It's wonderful to see the progress of this project and the huge enthusiasm for it on a local level! Have you seen all the photos with the hashtag #CrazyforPazzi on Instagram? There are over 600!

      I'm sending this around to everyone I know! But now I have a question. Is this project a registered charity in the US? Thanks.

      What a lovely, generous thing the Scuola del Cuoio is doing, donating this splendid book. I am so proud to be a very tiny donor.

      Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends. Thank you for giving back to Florence this season.

      Thanks to everyone who participated in the Twitter Chat - including @aresgames! People asked some really interesting questions that we're compiling now into a storify.
      One of the most interesting was a discussion of the function of the Pazzi Chapel as a chapter house and chapel. The fact is, that's one of the mysteries of this place - we still don't know everything about it, as we wrote in our last update (here:

      I just finished looking at the video in the new update, it's really fascinating. Art and workmanship coming together... I really hope to see more updates similar to this one!

    49. The Florentine on

      The Florentine is on a journey, down the centuries, into the archives, towards the future of the church of Santa Croce. We are honored to have joined hands with Opera of Santa Croce for this ground-breaking project. We thank everyone for their participation and passion and look forward to doing something truly special for Florence altogether.

    50. Giovanni Giusti on

      Provo un piacere fisico ad aver fatto questa donazione, il piacere di vedere restaurare un patrimonio dell'umanità, il piacere di avere il mio nome iscritto per sempre negli archivi di Santa Croce, il piacere di poter andare con la mia famiglia a visitare questi luoghi. Grazie per questa opportunità che con un piccolo gesto dà una grande soddisfazione.
