The foundation

Genoa, in the future, will surprise the world. The Pallavicino Foundation is the vanguard of that future

The Pallavicino ETS Foundation of Genoa was inaugurated in July 2019, by the will of Prince Domenico Antonio Pallavicino, with the aim of preserving and continuing the memory of the Pallavicino family. Sons of a glorious history, which places them among the most ancient and eminent feudal families of northern Italy, in the descent from the remote lineage of the Obertenga, capable of expressing, in their own family, senators, three doges of the Republic of Genoa in 1528 and the XVI Genoese hotel.
Through the important family heritage, the Foundation will be the protagonist of the cultural life of the country and of the city of Genoa, also thanks to the commitment of prof. Vittorio Sgarbi, capable of always generating an artistic vision of international level, promoting conferences, conventions, publications dedicated to Italian art, with particular attention to Genoese art, establishing prizes and assigning scholarships for young graduates in the history of art. The Foundation will work to increase its collection, with the purchase of paintings, sculptures, objects, on the Italian and international market, and will promote important exhibitions of ancient art, which will alternate in the rooms of Palazzo Pallavicino, or in other venues institutions, in twinning with museums or foundations.
