The Fondazione Furla.

The Fondazione Furla is the result of a long cultural and planning process begun by the company in 2000 with the launch of the Premio Furla per l’Arte award.

The Foundation was created in Bologna in 2008 at the behest of Giovanna Furlanetto, president of FURLA S.p.A. in order to guarantee and give continuity to the cultural projects launched by Furla and allow their successive development and international reinforcement. This project is driven by the company philosophy itself: to encourage and promote Italian contemporary culture in its various forms of expression from art to fashion design, supporting the creativity of young talents and constructing an area for discussion of all that is contemporary. This commitment has been confirmed by the success of the Premio Furla award, now recognized as an Italian competition of excellence in support of young artists.

The Fondazione Furla represents a new, sustainable way of creating culture, demonstrating the way in which exchange between the various personalities in charge of culture is possible and necessary. In this spirit, over the past few years major events have been created such as the "Mona Hatoum. Interior Landscape" exhibition (June-September 2009) organised in Venice in collaboration with the Fondazione Querini Stampalia- a leading event held during the 53rd Esposizione Internazionale of the Venice Biennale- and the "Diario dell’anima. Arvo Pärt & Bill Viola" concert (29 January, 2010) held in Bologna with Arte Fiera and the Centro della Voce of the University of Bologna.

The recent production of the work "If you see the object, the object sees you" by Rä di Martino as part of the "Terre Vulnerabili" exhibition in Milan (inaugurated on 21 October 2010) and the partnership with Manifest 8 - The European Biennial of Contemporary Art (Murcia, Spain) with the production of "We are Making History"- a work by Danilo Correale, the sole Italian guest artist- are further evidence of this strong commitment to the promotion of contemporary Italian creativity.


Created in 2000, the Premio Furla award was designed to give greater visibility, appreciation and support to emerging Italian artists with the specific objective of providing an exhaustive panorama of contemporary creativity in the country.

The artists present in every edition represent the great variety of languages of contemporary art, from video to photography, painting to installations and performance to sculpture.
