The Cologni Foundation for the Métiers d’Art is a private non profit organization. Franco Cologni, its President, created the Foundation in Milan in 1995, to accomplish a «new Renaissance» of the crafts and rescue the heritage of the métiers d’art from the threat of disappearance. With these founding purposes, the initiatives of the Cologni Foundation are chiefly addressed to the young and to the training of the next generations of artisans. The Foundation promotes, supports and carries out a number of cultural, scientific and educational programs.
The Fondazione Cologni is based in Milan
