The Ducci Foundation was founded in 1999 to promote dialogue between cultures, and the study and deeper appreciation of the changes affecting the economic and cultural fabric of society. The Foundation supports any action that might contribute to a greater connection between intellectual and scientific European communities, as well as an open and constructive dialogue with those of other world areas.
