The Malaspina Foundation is a non-profit foundation dedicated to the promotion of contemporary photography.

The mission of the Foundation is to become an experimental reference platform for research on national and international photography; contribute to developing the identity of the national territory by inviting well-known photographers or emerging young authors to work in Italy; promote the new generations of Italian authors by creating new opportunities for dialogue with national and international cultural institutions.

In particular, the Malaspina Foundation sets itself the goal of producing and curating photographic research projects; organize meetings, seminars and study conferences in collaboration with institutions, universities and schools of all levels; produce and archive publications of studies and research on photography.

The Foundation started its cultural and exhibition activity in 2016 in Ascoli Piceno. However, following the earthquake in Central Italy, the exhibition space at Palazzo Malaspina was closed forcing the Foundation to a new phase outside its walls. Since 2017, numerous collaborations have been launched that have allowed the Malaspina Foundation to continue its cultural activities in partnership with museums, foundations and other national and international institutions.
