How much do you know about the C.M. Lerici Foundation’s history?

The Foundation was established in the 1950s by Carlo Maurilio Lerici, an Italian engineer and industrialist. Lerici had a strong professional relation with Sweden and thanks to his financial support the construction of the Italian Cultural Institute in Stockholm was made possible. The Institute’s aim was to tie closer bounds between Italy and Sweden, the same one promoted by Lerici himself. Therefore, Lerici’s name is bound to the Institute and the homonymous Foundation, which still supports through scholarships the exchange of students and researchers in both science and humanities between Sweden and Italy.

You can find more about the Foundation’s history in “Enchanting Architecture”, the new book dedicated to the Italian Cultural Institute in Stockholm and published by 5 Continents Editions.

In particular, the historian and researcher Fredrick Whitling devotes his essay titled “Good Vibrations?” to Carlo Maurilio Lerici. Here Whitling illustrates Lerici’s vision and multidisciplinary interests, from science to humanities.
