Paola DUBINI Bocconi University - Filippo TANTILLO author

There is an Italy where the towns are abandoned, the population is ageing and the landscape is losing its human hand. It is an empty Italy, but one that contains our country’s future – much more than one would think. Lands grappling with climate change and a shifting world economy, traversed incessantly by human movements. From the glistening Occitan valleys of Piedmont to the ancient heart of Sardinia, passing through the warm colors of the central Apennines, in the sandy towns on the Ionian Sea coast, at the base of the continent's largest volcano, with the migrants of Friuli. This is a journey to the margins of our country, a country much larger and more diverse than it is often depicted, in search of a space still open to the possible.

Obtaining the right professional skills and building solid relationships with both public and private sponsors – based on similar grounds and interests, but also on cultural organizations’ ability to credibly demonstrate that what is invested actually returns to the community as value (cultural, economic, social, etc.) – are essential factors to successful fundraising. Furthermore, it is imperative that the proactive and communal approach to fundraising be part of the organization’s corporate culture at all levels, becoming the "glue" among all its members. In other words, in every cultural organization, governance and fundraising are so closely intertwined that the future of a theater or symphony orchestra depends on the board's effective ability to strategically share responsibility for fundraising success, beyond their individual functions and roles. How, though, can this invaluable balance be achieved?
