During 2017, the Foundation has continued to support, in Switzerland and overseas, a great variety of initiatives intended to minors and young people living in conditions of extreme social marginalization, poverty as well as in extreme psychological and physical distress. The experience acquired through the years fully confirmed the enormous potential of arts as a vector for social inclusion for the benefit of young people in need and as well as a tool for psychological support and resilience for those suffering from serious diseases.

Following its objectives, during this year, the Foundation has supported 14 projects in co-partnership with Alta Mane Italia, and 21 projects through direct donations from the Foundation, 10 of which based in Switzerland. All the supported activities complied with a renewed determination to increase the social impact and, in some cases, to promote the capacity building of those long-standing Partners, which through the years achieved significant results.
