Fondazione Salvatore is a non-profit organisation set up in 2015 with the aim of promoting, developing and diffusing culture in all its forms. The main action of Fondazione Salvatore is centred on Naples and the South, even if the interest extends to all the cultural initiatives that may involve southern Italy.
The action is aimed at raising awareness of the problems affecting these regions, with analysis and reflections on possible future scenarios and on any actions that may somehow reduce the gap between the regions of Northern Italy and the rest of Europe.
Fondazione Salvatore was the main promoter of Il Sabato delle Idee (www.ilsabatodelleidee.com), a project incubator which, by combining within a single idea the most prestigious Academic, Scientific and Cultural Institutions of the city of Naples, first of all the University of Naples Federico II and the University of Suor Orsola Benincasa, has seen, in its intense and continuous program of meetings, the alternation of illustrious personalities from the world of politics and national and international culture such as Jacques Attalì, Josè Manuel Barroso, Romano Prodi, Mario Monti etc., during their assignments, to name just a few. In addition to these analysis and reflection activities, Fondazione Salvatore has promoted the annual awarding, since 2004, of scholarships for deserving young students from the South in order to support them in their academic career.
Prizes have also been awarded and training courses set up, such as the photographic ones directed by the teacher Fabio Donato.
