The cultural work of the Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche, which started in Treviso in 1987, is carried out at three sites in the old town, restored by architect Tobia Scarpa, – the Bomben and Caotorta palazzos, the San Teonisto church and Ca’ Scarpa –, as well as casa Cozzi, a farmhouse nestled in the lush countryside of Zero Branco (Treviso).

Chaired by Luciano Benetton and directed by Luigi Latini, Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche is an international landscape research centre, which focuses on training and popularisation, documentation and publishing, while also carrying out activity and research in the field of the history of games, of music and historical heritage. Its library and garden are open to the public. Cultural events aimed at the town and at a wider audience are organised at its sites.

The Foundation’s work relies on an international scientific committee and numerous contributions from scholarship holders, external researchers, as well as on a number of collaborations with Italian and foreign universities and cultural institutions.
