Our foundation is targeted at the young and the more vulnerable and aims to emancipate them and develop their potential.
In collaboration with our partners, we offer a wide range of activities designed to boost each person’s educational, cultural and social development.

We are a not-for-profit organization founded by Cav. Andrea Pittini after the untimely death of his elder son, Pietro Pittini. Over the years we have supported the corporate community of the Pittini Group of steel companies. Cav. Andrea Pittini.
After the founder’s death in 2016, we transformed our organization, extending the foundation’s philanthropic activities to include a broader range of beneficiaries, particularly young people and children.
Since then, we have implemented and supported initiatives aimed at providing our youth with educational and occupational development, as well as social and cultural support, so they can gain the confidence and skills they need to pursue their life and financial goals. Our priority is to build a foundation of sustainability that maximizes social benefits for all.
The Pietro Pittini Foundation has been included in the Register of Legal Entities of the non profit sector since 2022.
