Palazzo Bondoni Pastorio Foundation

People, ideas, sinergy

Established in 2008, thanks to the passion and generosity of
Maria Simonetta Bondoni Pastorio (1954-2012), last descendant of the family,
The Palazzo Bondoni Pastorio Foundation (FPBP) has rapidly established itself as a point of reference for cultural activities of absolute importance, 
both locally and nationally and internationally.



Giulio Busi


Giulio is a scholar of Judaism and Renaissance history. He is particularly involved in these areas of research and teaching at the Foundation. When necessary, he lends a hand in the many activities of the Palace, from graphics to accounting, from logistics to publications.


Silvana Greco


Silvana is a sociologist of culture and art. She follows the sociological research projects of the Foundation, conceives and organizes art exhibitions and takes care of the realization of concerts and public events.


Luigi Attademo

Music Director

An internationally renowned guitarist, musicologist and teacher, Luigi invests his refined musical and philosophical culture in the Foundation's concert programming. And it is thanks to him that the Palazzo resounds with perfect harmonies.


Soul, mind, arms of the Foundation, 
volunteers are a key element 
of our cultural project. 
From the beginning, one year after another, from one undertaking to the next,
with intelligence and enthusiasm. 

Welcome to the Palace! 
Giulia Artioli, Mariagrazia Bellentani, Giovanna Bondioli, Lucilla Gerevini, Daria Magagnotti, 
Giorgio Sgarbi, Giulia Tomasi, Attilia Zappettini

Research, education, music:
in the premises of Palazzo Bondoni Pastorio, so rich in history and art,
the culture is alive.
Concerts, exhibitions, meetings, the Foundation's activity is intense and manifold.
And it also extends into digital space.
Our online courses, videos and publications 
spread our love for the past.
And our passion for the future.

Since 2009 the Foundation has opened and manages 
the Museum of Palazzo Bondoni Pastorio.

For its scientific commitment, the Foundation has been included by the MIUR in the Italian National Register of Research.


Culture is collaboration, synergy, exchange.
The Foundation is at the centre of a dense network of relationships and projects.
Shared dreams are those that come true.
