The Foundation was established by the architect Giovanni Michelucci in 1982 with “the objective of contributing to study and research in the field of town planning and modern and contemporary architecture, with particular regard to issues concerning social, hospital, prison and school buildings”. Twenty five years of experience have raised the Foundation to become a solid and unique reference point in research and planning in issues of social habitat and how space and society interrelate. The Foundation has an archive, a library, drawings and the plastic models from the architect’s studio, all of which may be consulted. The Foundation is also connected to the publication of the “La Nuova Città” journal.
The villa that houses the Foundation has one of the most beautiful views over Florence and the Arno valley. It also has a terraced garden planed with hydrangeas, roses and azaleas, as well as a wealth of species of trees, cypresses, oranges, pomegranates, and typical Mediterranean bushes and plants.
