The Pietro Pittini Foundation is committed to promoting actions aimed at innovation and development in line with the United Nations’ SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), introduced in 2015, and which constitute the Agenda 2030 blueprint for international development.
With this in mind, we are working on creating and developing projects that focus specifically on: SDG 4 – Quality Education, in order to ensure equal access to top-notch education, SDG 8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth aimed at ensuring that financial services, and other tools essential for inclusive and sustainable economic growth, are available to those most in need; and SDG 9 – Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure using technology, research and innovation as drivers that lift a community to a sustainable development.
We study the local context of each situation in order to seek the most suitable partners with whom to develop our projects, and who can ensure the delivery of first-rate programs in line with our goals.
Trieste 2020 Science Greeters
Trieste that has been chosen from ESOF to host science through researchers and scientists of many relevant Institutes and countries. FPP is willing to contaminate young university students to walk tourists and visitors through unconventional sites and places of the city. These students will be Greeters of Trieste in a mix of science, economy and culture thanks to the century vibrating history of this old empire city.
+Sport a Scuola
More movement, more play, more learning, more interdisciplinary activity, more socialization, more integration, more education, more health: all this is +Sport a Scuola (More Sport at School).
Sperimentare il Futuro - Industria 4.0
Sperimentare il Futuro (Exploring the Future) is an educational project aiming at innovation development and the diffusion of scientific skills.
Scholarships in social innovation
FPP starts a scholarship program with the aim of promoting the dissemination of social innovation among students. Università di Trieste and Università di Udine are new partners of FPP in these academic studies.
A pilot project of peer education that aims to disseminate science and tecnology to very young scholars (7-9 years old) through classes tought by high school students (16-18 years old ) of Malignani Tech- Institute of Udine: it’s STEMS for children from students.
DIDATTICA 4.O is a pilot project of long-life learning created in partnership with IC Tolmezzo and LAMA, the mechatronic lab of University of Udine. The goal of the program is to provide teachers with tech skills upgrading so they can be able to sustain and prepare students for the challenges of the future. The first edition of the project was focused on 3d printing and Arduino applications for educational purposes.
Other projects we support
This section gathers together the projects the foundation has decided to support that were conceived by other organizations and people in the area who, like us, want to meet the most urgent needs of the young and of their community.
These are outstanding projects that enable us to maintain a presence in the area and improve our awareness of the needs of its inhabitants, so as to initiate new and ever more effective collaborations.
Parole a Scuola (Words at School) is a free training initiative organized by Associazione Parole Ostili. It aims to share effective measures to give a concrete response to the need to tackle online hostility.
FORMA is a six-week electronic music festival organized by Renato Rinaldi and the Hybrida Space Association.
Music is an art that enriches and develops creativeness and sensibility. It is a universal language and has excellent educational applications. This is why we decided to support the musical activity of the G. Roli Institute of Trieste.
The foundation supports the Aurora Udine Est Association in running the green area and helps organize the recreational and sports activities, tournaments and events. The goal is to upgrade the Via Valente park in Udine and make it attractive to all the area’s inhabitants.
The Pietro Pittini Foundation is always on the look-out for new connections and collaborations and has united these two efforts with a small but – we hope – significant intervention to boost enrolments to the sports courses for beginners run by SGT in summer 2018.
The D.A.D.A. project (teaching for learning environments) is designed to gradually rethink learning environments, providing flexible, multi-purpose, modular and easily modified solutions according to the activity carried out. The aim is as far as possible always to fulfil all purposes.
Il Suono in Mostra (Sound on Exhibition) exhibits the works of leading sound artists, both local and international, in places traditionally designed for exhibitions (galleries and museums) and at the same time in selected urban contexts.
Propose a project
We are always happy to learn about new projects and initiatives in order to promote and support those who are committed to creating social value.
This is why we select projects sure to make a social impact and introduce innovation, possibly centred on young people affected by the four areas of concern: poverty, health, education and economic development.
