The mission areas of the Foundation are:

1) The paths of art and faith, to allow the many tourists to be able to live a spiritual experience by grasping the sense of the various dimensions of Beauty.
2) Building an education community around St. Peter’s through events, experiences, paths, and spiritual exercises in the area of cultural and spiritual formation.. Young people and adults with different work and training experiences (scientists and students, entrepreneurs and workers, professionals and employees, managers and retirees, teachers and the unemployed …) will be able to meet to get to know each other, dream, engage and build together.
3) Dialogue with cultures, other Christian confessions and other religions on the themes of the Pope’s latest encyclicals, to build a “social alliance”.

The karst river of our work is the spirituality of fraternity that nurtures hearts, draws people out of their land and permits free and responsible decisions for the good of all. In his Encyclical, Fratelli tutti, from which the Foundation gets its name, Pope Francis writes “Fraternity necessarily calls for something greater, which in turn enhances freedom and equality.” This is the sociopolitical condition for constructing “universal love” that respects and protects people’s dignity. To realize the new humanism requires the generous and available commitment of all, and the Foundation is a way to rewrite together a “human grammar” that makes us to recognize even when we do not know each other personally.


Art. 3 – The Foundation has the purpose of solidarity, training, dissemination of art, especially sacred art; it promotes synodality, the culture of fraternity and dialogue.

III. It organizes paths, events and experiences to foster fraternity and social friendship between Churches, different religions and between believers and non-believers;

IV. It promotes the culture of peace in the various spheres of life, from the personal to the social and political dimensions;

V. It favors “new encounters” nourished by social dialogue, by the sense of social forgiveness, by the purification of memory, by the promotion of restorative justice as an alternative to social revenge;

VI. It nourishes the initiatives aimed at encouraging the development of fraternal humanism, through the promotion of the principles of freedom, equality and fraternity, conditions for building a “universal love” that recognizes and protects the dignity of persons;

X. In the symbolic embrace of the colonnade of St. Peter’s Basilica, it takes on the care of the weakest, the outsider and the foreigner, the different and the marginalized; it goes beyond cultural and social frontiers to re-read the suffering of the world and offer solutions in the light of the Gospel and the pontifical magisterium.
