Fondazione Ermanno Casoli (FEC) was founded in 2007 to honor Elica – a global leader company that used to produce hoods for household use– founder memory. It aims at fostering the relation between art and industry, by promoting initiatives in which contemporary art turns into an educational and methodological tool, contributing to improve working spaces and innovation processes.

FEC has pioneered the investigation on the link between art and industry. It is now a cutting-edge reference model in the field of managerial education through contemporary art: as a matter of fact, it has been proposing more and more structured and specialized activities, which connect these two spheres by encouraging the mutual respect of their relevant goals.
