The E35 Foundation was established in July 2015 as a shared project of the local Entities of Reggio Emilia and their several members: Municipality of Reggio Emilia, Province of Reggio Emilia, Pietro Manodori Foundation, Chamber of Commerce of Reggio Emilia and C.R.P.A. Participating members of the Foundation are Legacoop Emilia Ovest and Boorea.
This collaboration arises from the need to support the region promotion at European and international level in order to attract financial resources, businesses, partnerships and support to local development policies and to local authorities and their aggregations.
The Foundation is named after the European road corridor Rome - Amsterdam, that crosses the Emilia territory, from Piacenza to Bologna – following the A1 motorway route – and its aim is to strengthen bridges and networks between Emilia, Europe, the world and vice versa.
Fondazione E35 supports these projects
