THE FOUNDATION

Ermanno Casoli Foundation

 

The “Fondazione Ermanno Casoli”, dedicated to the memory of Elica’s founder, was set up in 2007. Its aim is to promote the relationship between the world of art and that of industry, fostering initiatives in which contemporary art becomes an educational and methodological tool, contributing to improvement in the workplace environment and promoting innovative processes.

The foundation promotes projects which contaminate art and business organisations setting in motion original processes, which reinforce creativity and social cohesion. In all the activities, the Fondazione Ermanno Casoli assumes the role of mediator, guaranteeing complete autonomy and freedom of expression to the artists and, to the company, coherence and compatibility of the initiatives with requirements and goals. Elica is the laboratory in which the Fondazione Ermanno Casoli tests the value of its numerous activities.
