Fondazione Benetton Foundation

Fondazione Benetton, Via Cornarotta, Treviso, Province of Treviso, Italy

established Established :


The activities of Fondazione Benetton began in 1987 when Luciano Benetton surrounded himself with a group of intellectuals with the intent of setting up a cultural institution.

Since its beginning, the Foundation was entrusted to architect Domenico Luciani, together with architect Tobia Scarpa and historian Gaetano Cozzi. They created an institution with scientific goals, focusing especially on studying and researching the local area and landscape: its history, geography, natural and cultural heritage, and the behavior of the people who inhabited it over the centuries. A working group was formed in the headquarters of Piazza Crispi in Treviso, which grew over the years along with an extensive documentation center, comprising a library, an archive, a map library, and an organized deposit available for consultation with various materials, such as books, magazines, and cartographies.
