Ibero-American Patronage Awards

Recognises every year the labour of three art patrons: one Spanish, one Latin American and one International, that stand out for their ethical and moral convictions, and for the courage to act in accordance with them. Adding, in addition, the generosity and humility to accept this recognition, helping the Awards themselves to inspire, with their example, that other men and women get involved with their same conviction in this company: the conservation, promotion and dissemination of the heritage and artistic talent of Ibero-America.

Are consolidated with each edition with the “vision” of being at the service of a “transversal and inclusive” project between people, society, company, and institutions, which maximizes this common effort to build a more fertile coexistence between different individuals and between these and the social structures in which they are integrated, giving the greater visibility to the immense relevance of Art in the construction of a more humane and therefore freer society.

Are a charitable initiative aimed at financing the Conservation and Restoration Program of the collection of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in Madrid, one of the most important public collections in Spain and which is the common heritage of all humanity.
