History

The Foundation was created with the purpose of creating a cultural institution to make the great heritage of Luigi Einaudi's books and documents accessible and encourage economic, historical and political studies.


The

origins

Picture

Established in 1964, thanks to the donation of the distinguished economist’s library (courtesy of the Einaudi Family) and upon the initiative of public bodies, credit institutions and Turin companies, the Foundation was recognized by Presidential Decree in 1966.

After a few years of temporary seats, Palazzo d’Azeglio was made available by Fiat. It has been housing the Foundation since 1970.
