The scholarships

Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche, within the framework of research activities on landscape and the care for places developed with its Scientific Committee, since 2015 establishes landscape study scholarships respectively named after Sven-Ingvar Andersson (1927-2007), Rosario Assunto (1915-1994) and Ippolito Pizzetti (1926-2007), key figures for the Foundation’s scientific work since its inception. The legacy of their tutelage continues to inspire and guide landscape studies and research.

The residential scholarships focus on three thematic areas that represent their cultural profile and operation field:

Landscape project (Sven-Ingvar Andersson)

Theories and policies for landscape (Rosario Assunto)

Nature and gardens (Ippolito Pizzetti)
