Instituto Bardi / Casa de Vidro was created in 1990 and its mission is to preserve and make known the work of Lina Bo and Pietro Maria Bardi through exhibitions, publications, videos, lectures, conferences and round-table discussions. It supports projects that promote fine arts, design and architecture, stimulating the realisation of exchanges between intellectuals from different origins.
Among its educational objectives is the establishment of a reference library with works in the fields of art and architecture and the promotion of educative activities for poor communities. At present the institute is planning the restoration of the old residence of the Bardis, known as the Casa de Vidro (Glass House), designed by Lina, which will become the institute’s headquarters.
