The Foundation

The Foundation of the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana (Conservatoire of Italian-speaking Switzerland) aims to promote the diffusion of musical culture in Italian-speaking Switzerland, through both basic- and professional-level training, and through the promotion of artistic activities.

In the twenty-five years of its existence, the Conservatorio has grown from a regional music college to become an institution of national and international standing. This has been achieved through its admission of students from all over the world, its teachers (musicians of international repute), and its exchange programmes with regional, national and international institutions.

The Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana is conceived as a place for people, flexible and bureaucratically streamlined. Students and teachers are given ample scope for individual development, and it is partly for this reason that the training offered by the Conservatorio has attained such high levels of success.

The Foundation is dedicated exclusively to public service and has no part in profit-making or private activities.
