Fondazione Gramsci Onlus

Gramsci Onlus Foundation

Rome, Italy

In 1950 the Antonio Gramsci Foundation was established in Rome (renamed the Gramsci Institute in 1954) with the purpose of collecting the documentation relating to the work and thought of Antonio Gramsci and to boost research on the history of the Italian and international workers' movement. The original core of the heritage was made up in particular of the books and magazines belonging to Gramsci, to which were added in the early sixties, at the time of the establishment of the archive, the original manuscripts of the Prison Notebooks and Letters. In 1982 the Istituto Gramsci Foundation was born, which inherits the Institute's archival and library heritage. Since 1994, the Foundation has kept the entire historical archive of the Italian Communist Party, from the year of its establishment (1921) to the year of its dissolution (1991). Since May 2016 the new denomination is the Gramsci Onlus Foundation.
