A PLATFORM FOR SWISS CREATION AND INNOVATION IN ITALY
The Istituto Svizzero is a foundation created by the Swiss Confederation in 1947, which has the objective of promoting scientific and artistic exchange between the two countries. The Institute, which is located in Rome and Milan, is a landmark for Swiss culture in Italy. The Institute has a prolific artistic and scientific multidisciplinary programme which includes: exhibitions, concerts, conferences, performances and much more. Each year the Institute hosts six artists and six research fellows for its ten-month residency programme Roma Calling.
A CROSS-POLLINATION BETWEEN ART AND SCIENCE
The Istituto Svizzero’s characterising aspect, since its inception, is the cohabitation of people from different artistic and academic disciplines. The activities and the programme are developed by collaborations and a trans-disciplinary approach.
