The aim of the Foundation’s Educational Collection is to contribute to the development of educational projects inspired by Guido Molinari’s works and intended for a wide range of visitor groups. The collection of nearly 200 prints will be showcased through workshops and educational activities. Stay tuned for the rollout of these projects!

Online Collections

The Foundation’s team is currently working on transferring the database of its collections so that they will be progressively available online as of Spring 2024. Visitors from all over the world will thus be able to discover the Foundation’s collections in the comfort of their own home, admire previously unseen works and use the Foundation’s website as a documentation centre for their research. Our platform will allow visitors to identify specific objects and consult the corresponding photographs by keyword, exhibition, medium, publication or production date. By the end of 2024, our collections will be fully available online! Stay tuned for the launch of our platform.

This project is made possible with the help of Patrimoine Canada.
