Sol Meliá Italy is a member of honour of the Fondo per l’Ambiente Italiano (FAI) association, one of whose main objectives is the protection and appreciation of the country’s artistic heritage. In addition to the restoration and maintenance of buildings, the association also promotes cultural activities on both a local and national level.
The latest project supported by the FAI was the restoration of the Villa Necchi Campiglio, a historic building in Milan.
At the Gran Meliá Jakarta work is also done to promote Indonesian culture. The hotel actively cooperates with the VIVERE project. Indonesia has an almost infinite amount of examples of ethnic art and culture throughout its numerous islands. The hotel helps out by providing its event rooms so that many of the works of art discovered through the VIVERE project can be displayed and appreciated by guests.
