The Stelline Foundation is a historic Milanese institution established in 1986 by the Lombardy Region and the Municipality of Milan. Its headquarters, one of the buildings strongly rooted in the urban fabric of Milan for its historical and architectural values, is located in the area referred to as "Leonardo's Gardens" in front of the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie where the Last Supper is preserved.
For over thirty years, the Stelline Foundation has been a national and international cultural hub.
Proposals and projects for research and exploration of artistic expressions increasingly oriented towards international collaborations, the result of intense planning work, express the cultural vocation of the Foundation, which responds to an open and fluid vision of contemporaneity. Important exhibitions of high impact and quality level have been dedicated in recent years to great authors of the 1900s and to international contemporary artists, with special attention to photography and new Italian and foreign talents.
Leonardo in Milan left an indelible trace. Rereading the unique experience of the great Genius and the Last Supper with today's eyes is the model promoted by the international project Hub Leonardo, which speaks the language of creativity and cultural contamination. The Foundation is also home to a Congress Center, a place for communication, fashion, technology, science and information. Art and culture, in a winning mix also for congress activities, today represent a strategic feature of the Stelline Foundation.
