Business and mission

During its first ten years of activity, Fondazione supported the fair system and guided the transformation of Milan’s exhibition and congress system infrastructures; through the construction of fieramilano in Rho; the redevelopment of the historic city complex; and by providing financial support for trade shows and fairs with the Anti-Crisis Fund.

Now that the infrastructure transformation phase is almost complete, its activities are primarily focused on:

  • promoting and enhancing the development of the trade fair system and its ties to the territory through the following key areas of intervention, all of which point to an increased focus on the company’s purposes:
  • governance of the trade fair system, to optimize its ability to recognize its own priority areas of action, and to interact with the key players in the supply chain;
  • enhancing Fondazione’s assets;
  • optimizing Fondazione’s legacy of historic, cultural and research assets.
  • ensuring that its actions are inspired by the principle of subsidiarity;
  • requesting and/or carrying out the monitoring of the projects it finances and the work of affiliated and controlled companies, including expectations and results.
