The Veneranda Arca di S. Antonio is an institution similar to the fabbricerie and supported by a College composed of seven members called Presidents, who offer their work for free.
Two of the Presidents are freely appointed by the Holy See, one is the Father Rector of the Friars Minor Conventual keepers of the Basilica of St. Anthony; the other five are appointed by the City of Padua among the citizens professing the Catholic faith and after approval by the Holy See.
