Fondazione 1563 per l’Arte e la Cultura of the Compagnia di San Paolo
has since 2013 supported research and advanced training in the field of
the humanities. In a wider effort to pursue this goal, Fondazione 1563
is now expanding its fellowship programme to historical research in a
global perspective. To this end, it has created the Turin Humanities Programme,
a research initiative that will allow junior scholars to work on
interrelated research projects under the guidance of especially
appointed senior scholars.
