On the occasion of
Fondazione Ivano Barberini
The Fondazione Ivano Barberini, whose mission draws its inspiration from the ideas of Ivano Barberini. Over time the Foundation has sought out and developed strategies that make the very most of the cooperative philosophy and assert - in Italy and all over the world - this business model as a vital, not-to-be-ignored aspect of the market’s social economy. The bedrock of the Foundation’s work is the notion that cooperatives and the cooperative movement represent not just a different way of doing business and distributing wealth, but are also essential elements in the construction and reinforcement of democracy and its values.
