Why a Foundation
It’s necessary to be independent of ideologies and lobbies and, it is also important to have a financial independence to play an active and leading role in society. For this reason we’ve chosen the “legal body” Fondazione Etica: by nature, it must have property and financial resources that allow it to pursue its objectives in legal independence from its funders.
Fondazione Etica was founded by people that believe in the purposes of the Foundation, insomuch as they could invest themselves in a clear and transparent way.
Nobody is a has a commanding positionas in a sort of a widespread shareholding, where the contributions are small and even very small.
