Foundation / Profile
Putting the
community first

Established in October 2017 by Paolo Clerici, with the support of Coeclerici S.p.A., Fondazione Paolo e Giuliana Clerici promotes social and cultural initiatives to foster wellbeing in the community, and put local excellence firmly in the spotlight.

Paolo Clerici has always had a strong bond with maritime values. Now, through the Foundation, he has embarked on a long-term venture with Genoa’s Galata Maritime Museum, staging high-profile projects that showcase cultural, historical and artistic aspects of the seafaring tradition.

Its commitment to social issues makes the Foundation a reference point in the field of volunteering, delivering support to a number of associations that tackle key social issues.

The Foundation also organises projects to renovate and restore artistic and architectural features, thereby helping to valorise Italy’s exceptional historical legacy.
