Giorgio Conti Foundation

The tribute of a man to his city

Giorgio Conti (1928 – 2002) was an entrepreneur who, through his passion, dedication and talent for imagining the future, was able to create a group which is now the world leader in the sector of quarrying and selling of stone blocks.

Giorgio Conti died in 2002 and the following year, wanted by his daughters Franca and Daniela, the Fondazione Giorgio Conti was established. The Foundation was born to continue the ideas of Giorgio Conti, a man who, besides being a passionate and determined businessman, always showed a great sensitivity for social solidarity and the preservation and safeguard of human and artistic values, which will be continued through the initiatives of the Foundation.

Palazzo Cucchiari

The Palazzo, which takes its name from the family which commissioned its construction, is a building constructed for the housing needs of the new borghese class of the late 1800s.

Upon its completion in 1891 by the engineer Leandro Caselli, younger brother to Crescentino Casello and favorite pupil of Alessandro Antonelli, who then finalized the construction of the property of Mole Antonelliana.

Palazzo Cucchiari distinguishes itself for its simple and clear style which combines the linearity which was so en vogue at the time (and which can be found in many other properties made in Carrara by the Caselli such as Palazzo Binelli, Aurelio Saffi School, Dogali police station, Politeama Verdi, the Marcognano cemetery and Piazza D’Armi.)

Today, after a long and careful restoration, Palazzo Cucchiari houses the Giorgi Conti Foundation. Not only does it serve as a space for exhibitions and concerts, it also serves as a testimony to how important the 19th century was for Carrara and all of Italy.
