A research-center in cognitive systems and ontology. Our guiding idea is
that theories developed between the end of the 19th century and the
beginning of the 20th in the area we may broadly term "Mitteleuropean" could
offer positive hints to the development of contemporary science.
Mitteleuropa Foundation has been established in Bolzano, North Italy, in
February 2002. A number of events organized during the period 1987-2001
paved the way to the Foundation. See the Past Events page for information on
some of the previous events.
The premises of the Foundation are situated in an ancient building, recently
refurbished, located in the medieval center of the town, endowed with a
specialized library, actually under construction, offices, computer
facilities and study-rooms.
