In 1992, William Figliola founded the Italian Arts Foundation.

Italian Arts Foundation was born to promote Italian art in the world, as a factor of social innovation and cultural development. The mission of ITAF is to encourage the creation of an integrated and synergic system that operates to favour the dissemination of arts and its forms of expression.

For each of the four lines of intervention identified – Education, Training, Promotion and Use – support for specific and pertinent system projects is envisaged, accomplished especially in conjunction with and according to the relative specializations of the main entities and institutions operating throughout the area.

Italian Arts Foundation collaborates with many private collections and art institutions to promote unique and prestigious pieces of art. For instance, thanks to collaboration with the “Private Collection Bellini”, the Foundation has the exclusive worldwide mandate to represent this illustrious collection, available for special events in international museums or public and private organizations. The Bellini’s Collection brings together more than 800 great artworks collected for more than seven centuries by the most important Italian artists: Michelangelo, Tiziano, Valdambrino, Donatello, Rubens, Strozzi, Guidi, Raffaello, Guardi, Canaletto, De Chirico, Balla, Boccioni, Dalì. ITAF offers bespoke solutions from exhibition organisation, painting loans, to hosting private art events.
