Importance of value and responsible commitment

The Bracco Foundation is proud to have its roots embedded in the wealth of values firmly upheld by the Bracco family and company for 90 years, the primary value being that of corporate social responsibility. The core mission of the Foundation is to create, promote and propagate expressions of culture, art and science, as a way to improve quality of life and social cohesion. Particular attention is paid to the role of women and the young in the various aspects of life.

The Bracco Foundation is headed by the President, Diana Bracco, assisted by a Steering Board, a Management Committee and a Board of Auditors.

The foundation is based in Milan, in the historic Visconti Palace. The building also houses the “Teatrino”, the Foundation’s laboratory of ideas for the scientific and cultural sectors, which every year organizes cycles of meeting open to the city.

    The main themes developed in the field of arts and culture are chosen with specific scientific/technological and educational content: for example in the figurative arts diagnostics applied to the study and renovation of works of art, the relationships between culture and well-being, the relationship between art and science. Particular attention is paid to musical culture, with support for leading musical institutions in Italy and abroad.
