What is the International Giuseppe Verdi Foundation, why was it founded and what are its aims?

The foundation, set up in 2007, is an international non-profit organisation focusing on the life, work and music of Verdi, with the main aim of preserving the legacy of the great composer and of those associated with Giuseppe Verdi in all areas, for the benefit of future generations. In doing so, the foundation hopes to make research (musicology) accessible to students and all those interested without any restrictions.

Additionally, the foundation oversees multiple projects, including the launch of an international multilingual research and education centre, the establishment of an international Verdi professorship and the multilingual translation and publication of Verdi's comprehensive letter correspondence.

The aim of the foundation is intense, trustworthy cooperation with all people and institutions close to Giuseppe Verdi's work and to work together beyond personal interests and across national borders.
