Fondazione Furla—founded in Bologna by FURLA President Giovanna Furlanetto in 2008—is the result of a long-term process that the company embarked on in 2000, aimed at encouraging and promoting contemporary culture in Italy, fostering young creative talent, and building a platform of dialogue on the themes of our era. To further these aims, it established the Furla Art Award, which, over the course of ten editions, from 2000 to 2015, gained international renown as a cutting-edge Italian competition supporting young artists.
In 2016, Fondazione Furla decided to bring the award to a close, reinventing itself and charting a new path with the launch of its new project Furla Series: a multi-year program of exhibitions and events dedicated to renowned international artists, and organized in close collaboration with Italian art institutions, with an entirely female program designed to give value and visibility to women’s fundamental contribution to contemporary culture.
Continuing Fondazione Furla’s commitment to supporting contemporary art, the Furla Series spearheads a working model based on synergy and collaboration that will advance and enrich the country’s contemporary art scene. So far, projects have been staged in collaboration with major Milanese institutions such as the Museo del Novecento, Triennale and the GAM – Galleria d’Arte Moderna.
