MILAN, FAG, 8TH EDITION, 2014
The welfare state crisis has stimulated in Italy as well a growing interest for the non-profit institutions, which represent, in their entirety, an interesting alternative to the public-law models of social work. There are different kinds of non-profit institutions, but only one of them boasts millennial origins and, at the same time, great potentialities for the future: the foundation. The volume analyses the foundations at an interdisciplinary level. All juridical, financial, organizational and economic aspects of birth, growing and management of a foundation are analyzed with a lot of examples and summary charts. The text aims at both people who intend to build a foundation and people working for existing foundations or, in any case, who want to study in depth their mode of operation.
