About us

Villa Vigoni is a bilateral association, which was founded by the German Federal Republic and the Italian Republic. Its aim is to foster the relationship between Italy and Germany in the fields of scientific research, higher education and culture. Villa Vigoni fosters the Italian-German dialogue and opens this bilateral dimension towards a European and international dimension.

The meetings taking place at Villa Vigoni are characterized by high thematic diversity, which is also reflected in their numerous formats: scientific meetings, seminars on contemporary politics, workshops for PhD students, debates between Italian and German journalists, round tables among experts.

Our guests will enjoy an environment of rare fascination: every aspect – from the meetings in the modern conference room to the meals in the ancient main building – keeps them in touch with European history and culture, giving particular emphasis to testimonials of Italian-German relationships.

Villa Vigoni’s annual programme furthermore offers events aimed at a larger public, such as concerts, master classes and expositions.

The historical park and the Villa Mylius-Vigoni are open to all interested persons in the context of regular guided tours.

Thanks to its scientific activities Villa Vigoni is among the istituti scientifici speciali (‘special scientific institutes’) acknowledged by the Italian Ministry for Education, University and Research. Villa Vigoni’s scientific production extends from publications and book series to high level events planned and organized by our team.
