Following the restoration and refurbishing works that took place between 2013 and 2016 and covered most of the building, today the Innocenti Institute can host national and international exhibitions, shows and events. Rooms, halls and monumental courtyards can be used for meetings, dinners and shows. The proceeds of these events are used to support the Innocenti Institute's reception activities.
