At ITALY Magazine we consider it our mission to help connect our readers with Italy in meaningful ways. To celebrate Italian Heritage Month we decided to help a great Italian organization - FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano or the Italian National Trust) - in the work it does to preserve the amazing cultural heritage of Italy. We are asking for your help to achieve this.

Here is what you can do: Help us celebrate Italian Heritage Month by sending us images that capture the essence of Italian Heritage for you. Whether images of your family moving from Italy for a new life in a different country, you going back to meet long-lost Italian relatives, or images of Italy that you took and symbolize all that is great. Send them to heritage@italymagazine.com with a little background story or just a caption for the image.

Here is what we will do: We will gather the pictures together, select the most representative ones and share them with all to enjoy on October 31st. For every picture we post we will also donate $2 to FAI. We want to make this a nice significant donation so send those pictures in!

Note: By sharing the photo you allow us to use it on www.italymagazine.com. You retain all other copyright.
