The Fondazione Giorgio Cini is a non-profit cultural institution based in Venice, Italy. It was founded by Vittorio Cini, in memory of his son Giorgio, with the aim of restoring the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore (devastated after 100 years of military occupation) and of creating an international cultural centre that would re-integrate the Island into the life of Venice.
«The Fondazione Giorgio Cini’s mission is to promote the redevelopment of the monumental complex on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore and encourage the creation and development of educational, social, cultural and artistic institutions in its surrounding territory.»
Alongside the Foundation’s commitment to its own research and the conferences and seminars growing out of this work, the Island welcomes events sponsored by distinguished cultural and scientific organizations. It has even been the site of major international summits (most importantly the G7 in 1980 and 1987).
The role of the Fondazione Giorgio Cini is attested by the many highly esteemed intellectuals, artists, politicians and economists who have been involved in its programme, and by the recollections of scholars and guests who have spent time on the Island.

Tornabuoni Art was founded by Roberto Casamonti in 1981 in Florence, in via Tornabuoni from which it takes its name. Several galleries were then opened in Switzerland in Crans Montana (1993), in Milan (1995), Paris (2009) and London (2015).

Tornabuoni Art specialises in Post-War Italian art, and in particular in the works of Lucio Fontana, Alberto Burri, Paolo Scheggi, Enrico Castellani and Alighiero Boetti. Close collaboration with the foundations that represent the artists or the authors of their general catalogues have enabled the gallery to publish scholarly catalogues in collaboration with Forma Edizioni, Florence, with monographs on Lucio Fontana, Enrico Castellani, Alighiero Boetti, Mimmo Rotella, Paolo Scheggi, Arnaldo Pomodoro, and Emilio Isgrò.

The founder of Tornabuoni Art met Boetti in the 1980s and immediately became one of his most passionate collectors. Since the artist’s death, the gallery has been committed to promoting Boetti’s work, specifically through exhibitions in public institutions and in its own exhibition spaces, such as the 2010 exhibition at Tornabuoni Art Paris, curated by Annemarie Sauzeau. Many works from this show were then included in the Game Plan exhibition, at London’s Tate Modern, for which Tornabuoni was one of the main lenders. More recently, between late 2016 and spring 2017, the gallery organised two important retrospectives in its London and Paris galleries to mark the publication of a new Alighiero Boetti monograph, edited by Laura Cherubini, with a contribution by Agata Boetti, Director of the Archivio Alighiero Boetti.

Tornabuoni has collaborated with the Fondazione Giorgio Cini in the organisation and realisation of the exhibition Alighiero e Boetti: Minimum/Maximum at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, in addition to lending work.
