Associazione Genesi, founded in 2020 at the behest of Letizia Moratti, is committed to the defense of human rights by valorizing the different cultures and the environment. The Associazione’s mission is to contribute, through contemporary art, to the creation of a more responsible and socially active citizenry.
For this reason, Associazione Genesi created Collezione Genesi, under the curatorship of Clarice Pecori Giraldi, selecting artworks by artists from around the world and from different generations, which reflect on the urgent, complex, and at times dramatic cultural, environmental, social, and political issues of today.
The Associazione is also the founder of the E4Impact Foundation, which also sees the participation of Università Cattolica, Mapei, WeBuild, Intesa Sanpaolo, ENI, Montello, Carvico, CONFAPI and Associazione Always Africa, in addition to Individual Participants Diana Bracco, Michele Carpinelli and Jean Sebastien Decaux.
E4Impact offers entrepreneurial programs in seventeen African countries, with a threefold objective: to train new entrepreneurs to make a strong social impact; to collaborate with African universities in order to offer entrepreneurial training aimed at concrete action; to encourage encounters between Italian and African ventures aimed at sustainability.
Starting on September 2021 the Association has started Progetto Genesi. Art and Human Rights, curated by Ilaria Bernardi: an interdisciplinary, traveling and inclusive project, aimed at offering a permanent education as concerns the topic of human rights.
