Fondazione Giorgo Cini

Fondazione Giorgo Cini

The Fondazione Giorgio Cini was founded on April 20th, 1951 by Vittorio Cini, with the aim of promoting restoration of the monumental complex on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore and to make it an international center of cultural activities, research and meetings of great importance. During its 70 years of history, the Fondazione has promoted countless social, cultural and artistic activities in a constant dialogue with other Institutions and illustrious representatives of Italian and international cultures. The extraordinary importance of the Fondazione is well testified by the large number of events organized and host in its headquarters, documented in publications, and by the consistency of its cultural patrimony, especially artistic (featuring early printed books, drawings, miniatures, tapestries, paintings, furniture, sculptures) and archival (articulated in rich documentary and photographic archives coming from all over the world) preserved on the Island. The Fondazione, in addition to hosting great exhibitions, research activities, study meetings and seminars, training and specialization courses, is located in an artistic and monumental setting that includes masterpieces by Palladio and Longhena.
