Società di Amici


The generosity of the Bogliasco Foundation's most important group of supporters, the Società di Amici, is the cornerstone of our mission to support the work of artists and humanists through our fellowship program at the Bogliasco Study Center. In appreciation of your gift of $1,000 or more, the Foundation is able to offer certain privileges, including acknowledgement on our website and invitations to special Foundation events. For gifts of $10,000 or more, privileges include inclusion on the Bogliasco Center permanent donor plaque, plus personalized invitations to visit the Study Center and dine with the Fellows in residence.

By joining the Società di Amici, you will make an important contribution to the future vitality of the arts and letters, those disciplines that have, in large measure, defined human existence.
