The Fondazione is under the artistic Directorship of Francesco Bonami and organises a wide-ranging programme of activities and events organised in parallel and in response to all the main shows. The exhibitions are challenging, often of an experimental and site-responsive nature that cover political, social and philosophical themes and issues.
