The Festival partners

"Progetto Italia" is an important series of initiatives launched by the Telecom Italia Group, testifying to the company's social and civil commitment to Italy.
With its focus on supporting scientific research and cultural, social and sporting initiatives, the project embraces the whole country.
Some of the key goals underpinning the project are to:

contribute to growth in Italy, in keeping with the sense of civil responsibility that has always been part of the company's philosophy;

use the Group's technological resources to support the various initiatives, providing the various activities with the technological capacity available to Telecom Italia;

ensure news of these activities and the values underpinning them reaches as wide an audience as possible, assisted by the Group's medias, La 7 and Virgilio

Liguria is one of the reference territories for the foundation Compagnia di San Paolo; in particular, the Compagnia pays great attention to the initiatives for Genoa, partly in view of its role as the European Capital of Culture 2004.
In keeping with these goals, the Compagnia supports the "Festival della Scienza", an event whose aim is to bring the latest developments of science and technology to the knowledge of the general public via many initiatives.

The Compagnia di San Paolo is a private law association working in the fields of research, education, art, conservation and development of cultural heritage and activities and environmental heritage, health and assistance to the weaker social groups.
