The Foundation was founded following the resolution passed by the Comune di Venezia Council board on March 3rd 2008 with the objective of managing and developing the immense cultural and artistic heritage of the Musei Civici di Venezia.

Formed as a participatory foundation, it has only one founding member, the Comune di Venezia.

This model encourages the participating partners to join together, both public and private, to contribute to the life of the foundation, supporting its institutional aims.

The organs of the Foundation are: the Steering Commitee, the President, the Director, the Scientific Committee, the Management Committee, and the Board of Auditors.

The Foundation manages and promotes a museum system that is detailed, complex, but rich and financially sound; it enjoys total administrative and managerial independence – under the control of the Steering Commitee –, thus allowing operational and planning agility, considerable transparent entrepreneurial motivation, an efficient and rational corporate structure, and the ability to unite and recruit resources. This system not only promotes the traditional proposals of any museum network (display, conservation, study, and development), but also fosters an outstanding body of cultural services articulated in different aspects and themes: research, training, creativity, specialisation, protection, presentation, teaching, and communication. Nevertheless, all activities are focused on the quality of the offerings, the attention paid to social demand, and the high educational and ethical value aligned with economic equilibrium.
