The Cultural Center and the Center for Religious Studies offer in-depth courses on philosophical, political, social and religious themes, relevant for the understanding of the contemporary world, divided into conferences, conventions, workshops, theatrical performances and publications. In addition to these activities, the Foundation promotes a program dedicated to philosophy with children, aimed at stimulating, in the youngest children, the formation of an autonomous and responsible thought. With a view to supporting individual study paths, the Foundation also makes the patrimony of its specialized library available to researchers, students and citizens. The constant development of its activities has allowed the institution to develop an autonomous, articulated and organic cultural project, capable of addressing, with specific methods and languages, to all age groups. For this reason too, the Foundation presents itself today as a place of cultural reflection of an original character, in which academic research is not released from civil commitment and specialized languages ​​coexist with the dimension of public disclosure and discussion.
