Fondazione Adolfo Pini

Fondazione Adolfo Pini is a no-profit institution, house-museum of the painter Renzo Bongiovanni Radice, located in a historical building in Corso Garibaldi, Milan.

Corso Garibaldi 2, Milan, Italy

Founded in 1991 thanks to Adolfo Pini (1920-1986) and named after him, the Foundation is based in Milan in the elegant, late Nineteenth Century building situated in2 Corso Garibaldi. Besides Adolfo Pini, scientist and lecturer in physiology, here lived and worked Renzo Bongiovanni Radice (1899-1970), painter and Adolfo’s maternal uncle and key figure in his cultural education and in feeding his interest for the arts. Adolfo Pini wanted the Foundation to be dedicated to his uncle’s memory and to aim at promoting and giving value to his artworks through studies and exhibitions, as well as supporting young artists with scholarships, education opportunities and other initiatives. The Foundation is also committed to the promotion of Adolfo Pini’s person, who was, besides his scientific endeavours, a writer, a poet, a composer and an art enthusiast, thus being a great example of the perfect synthesis between scientific and humanistic culture. Among the initiatives held by the Foundation are “StorieMilanesi”, a cycle of projects dedicated to contemporary art, and fellowship for young students.
