Born in 2014 to support patronage in favor of cultural heritage, the art bonus is a tax credit for donations of money in support of culture and entertainment. Thanks to the art bonus, those who make donations in cash to support culture enjoy important tax benefits in the form of a tax credit.


Liberal disbursements that give the right to credit

The Art Bonus provides a tax credit of 65% for donations in favor of: Maintenance, protection and restoration of public cultural assets; museums, archaeological sites, archives and public libraries; public theaters and lyric symphonic foundations.


Do you want to become a patron?

To make a donation in support of culture, it is necessary to identify the intervention (the public cultural asset or the support activity or the public entertainment structure) that you want to support with the donation and, in accordance with the provisions of the law that regulates the Art bonus, contact the beneficiary and agree with him the details of the disbursement.
