The Foundation


Fondazione Luigi Rovati is a tangible and intangible infrastructure of the knowledge society.


It carries out processes and activities in various areas of cultural endeavour, in order to generate knowledge, creativity and benefits of social utility.

It operates in a number of fields, from archaeology to art history, also experimenting with artistic expression as a system of care under the new approach to welfare. It produces events, exhibitions, encounters and exchanges in multiple disciplines. It develops activities of research and training.

It believes in culture’s beneficial economic and social impact.

It constructs its identity through a system of relations and connections with other subjects, both institutional and corporate, promoting its own projects, as well as joint efforts with others.

It expresses its values through ongoing relations with a variety of target groups: experts, students and young people, schools, tourists and the general public, families and children. It cultivates relations to create benefits of social utility; in dealing with different communities, it favours interactions and circular exchanges of information.
