The “Piccolo” violin made by Lorenzo Storioni in 1793 is the subject of a complex and structured intervention with the acquisition, study, analysis, restoration and display to the public of a refined pearl of Cremona violin making, thanks to a partnership between Bracco Foundation, the municipality of Cremona and the Violin Museum as one of the activities co-ordinated by the Violin Making Cultural District.

This year the photographic exhibition, to be held from July 2nd to October 31st, entitled “Wasteland.The Garbage Patch State”, an artistic project created by architect and designer Maria Cristina Finucci, to make the general public aware of one of the most serious environmental emergencies of our time, plastic pollution in the seas.
The photographic exhibition “Wasteland. The Garbage Patch State”, promoted by Bracco Foundation and CDI – Centro Diagnostico Italiano, talks about the artistic intervention of Maria Cristina Finucci through series of art installations made of plastic caps, to make people aware of the pollution in the seas. The exhibition is from July 2nd to 2018 October 31st in Milan, at CDI – Centro Diagnostico Italiano (via Saint Bon, 20).
On Thursday 28th September 2017 at Palazzo Reale in Milan, a press conference was held to present the "Inside Caravaggio" exhibition, which Bracco Group partners. The exhibition opened to the public on 29th September 2017 and will run until 28th January 2018.
The “Inside Caravaggio” exhibition is a unique exhibit that brings together 20 works by the master painter for the first time (from 28th September to 28th January 2018 at Palazzo Reale, Milan). For its 90th anniversary, the Bracco Group has contributed to the organisation of this cultural event by conducting diagnostic analyses on the works, which reveal the artist’s creative process.
The “Ladies, prints and extravagances” exhibition (May 31 – October 30, 2017) is the result of a school-work alternation Project involving the Umberto Boccioni artistic high school, the Poldi Pezzoli Museum and Bracco Foundation, which fits perfectly with the mission of the foundation of favouring, through progettoDiventerò, young talents and their entry into employment through highly diversified support initiatives.
Bracco Foundation in 2015 produced “Cinderella”, a new ballet that revisits a famous title in the repertoire, danced by the La Scala Theatre Academy School of Ballet to music by Sergei Prokofiev with choreography by the Director of the School, Frédéric Olivieri.
Torviscosa is an example of positive osmosis between industry, the local area and the environment, where 14 years ago the Bracco Group recovered a part of the historic industrial site of SNIA Viscosa dating back to the 1930s in order to house SPIN, one of its most technologically sophisticated production facilities.
