SIAD Sestini Foundation

The Foundation was founded in 1987 with the purpose of organizing cultural events, supporting the medical and scientific world, publishing study materials and scientific and technical information, and creating scholarships.
Some examples of projects that the Foundation has promoted and developed are:
  • computerization of the Bergamo Riuniti Hospital cardiology unit;
  • International Day of Study into xenon anesthesia applications, plus a large number of other conventions on the same subject;
  • support of the Bergamo International Advanced Medical Science Academy;
  • acquisition of the film and photographic archive owned by Domenico Lucchetti and organization of the Visible City exhibition;
  • exchange program with scholarships between engineering students from Bergamo University and Colorado State University–Pueblo (USA);
  • acquisition of the Asperti (province and city of Bergamo) and Pesenti (origin of aviation in Bergamo and in Italy) photographic archives;
  • membership of the Bergamo in History Foundation.
 
The Foundation has also supported the Bergamo for Bergamo Foundation, promoted by the Rotary Club Bergamo, for the construction of the “House of the Child”.
The facility accommodates children discharged from the Department of Neonatal Pathology at the Pope John XXIII Hospital, as well as parents who find themselves in a difficult situation due to their newborn child being admitted to the hospital.
