Located on the Italian Riviera in the village of Bogliasco, the Liguria Study Center provides residential fellowships for qualified persons working on advanced creative or scholarly projects in the arts and humanities. The Study Center is one of the few residential institutions in the world dedicated exclusively to the humanistic disciplines: Archaeology, Architecture/Landscape Architecture, Classics, Dance, Film/Video, History, Literature, Music, Philosophy, Theater, and the Visual Arts.
The Study Center was founded in 1996; during sixteen years of activity it has hosted almost 700 fellows from 40 countries.
The Liguria Study Center is administered by the Bogliasco Foundation, an international operating foundation that was created in 1991 by a group of artists and scholars from Italy, Switzerland, and the United States.
In January, 2007, the Foundation received the “Grifo d’Oro,” the highest honor given by the city of Genoa, in recognition of its support of the humanistic disciplines. During the presentation ceremony held in the Palazzo Tursi, the Mayor of Genoa read the following citation:
“This prestigious award is given to the Bogliasco Foundation, which, for more than a decade, has undertaken an intense and courageous cultural enterprise that is international in scope. Through the Liguria Study Center for the Arts and Humanities, by awarding residential fellowships it has furthered the work of highly qualified artists and humanistic scholars.”
– Professor Giuseppe Pericu, Mayor of Genoa, January 16, 2007
