What is the Romualdo Del Bianco Foundation

The Romualdo Del Bianco Foundation is a non-profit Florentine institution endorsing an array of cultural events in order to encourage mutual exchanges of knowledge among young students, academicians and professionals from different countries with an extensive network of universities, libraries, museums, embassies, consulates, as well as public and private cultural institutions and organizations worldwide (www.fondazione-delbianco.org).

Being fully conscious that the cultural and artistic heritage possesses itself a high capacity for transmitting the values of interpersonal and intercultural exchange, reciprocal awareness and understanding, the Romualdo Del Bianco Foundation has long been committed to a program of cultural initiatives at its safeguarding and appreciation.

Thus the Romualdo Del Bianco Foundation intend by means of their program to attract the enthusiasm and consensus and, if possible, the impassioned involvement of all those who see in art and architecture non only universal expression of beauty and cultural identity, but also a powerful instrument with which to stimulate interpersonal and intercultural meetings, reciprocal awareness and understanding, and thus friendship between peoples; not solely an effort aimed at the protection of a patrimony which belongs to all humanity, but an investment for world peace; as the Romualdo Del Bianco Foundation’s motto : “discovering the past together – working to build a shared future”.

A special attention is given to students coming from Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Asia and Far East, because due to different reasons (historical, political or geographical) these countries have recently shown a great interest towards a stronger integration with western countries and their young generations just embody this growing interest.
