Background
"Fondazione Etica does not want to become a research centre, or a Foundation of education or political culture. In Italy, in fact, there are many organizations that organize conferences and publications, that often are excellent events, but that leave no trace in the everyday life of citizens.
The Foundation intends to be an active subject, capable of assuming their positions; an authoritative subject. It will not carry out studies and analysis, but it will do the motivating tool to build solutions and projects, so that the results and ideas are transformed into a common heritage of a country."
