About—Adriano Olivetti Foundation
Adriano Olivetti Foundation

The Adriano Olivetti Foundation was established in 1962, with its main offices in Rome, by Adriano Olivetti’s relatives, friends, and collaborators, with the aim of mobilizing and developing the civil, social, and political engagement that distinguished the work of this Piedmont entrepreneur. Among its statutory aim is “the promotion, encouragement, and organization of studies directed at deepening the knowledge of the conditions upon which social progress depend”. In line with this mandate, the Foundation carries out research and sponsors cultural and scientific projects following an interdisciplinary approach in four main areas, Institutions and Society; Economics and Society; Community and Society; and Art, Architecture, and City Planning. The Adriano Olivetti Foundation has been a member of the European Foundation Center since 1998.
