Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Torino


Fondazione CRT is a private non-profit organisation established in 1991 by the Cassa di Risparmio di Torino. Its headquarters are situated in the centre of the city of Turin, in an historic building constructed during the 18th century and restored during the 1930s by the famous architect Giovanni Chevalley.

The foundation has a strong localised calling and acts in key sectors of development in the Italian regions of Piedmont and Valle d´Aosta, developing projects that range from conservation and valorisation of artistic heritage and cultural activities to scientific research; from education and training to health and assistance; from environmental protection to innovation in local organisations.

Programme Areas

The foundation supports external initiatives and carries out its own projects in the fields of scientific research, education, conservation, cultural heritage, performing arts, health and welfare, innovation in local authorities, and local economic development.

The Open To All initiative is an example of Fondazione CRT’s activities in the field of inclusion, following the foundation’s involvement in the Winter Paralympics Games of 2006. Open To All aims to become a model of accessibility in Torino as well as in the north-western Italian regions of Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta.

The project, which focuses mainly on improving the accessibility of the city of Turin, involves fundamental operating partners and institutions, such as Politecnico di Torino, ISITT, Thales Alenia Space, City of Torino, Piedmont Region and GTT.

Open To All currently undertakes four main lines of action:

  • Developing a new satellite navigator to enhance personal mobility and autonomy for people with disabilities in the pedestrian city zone;
  • Optimising the conditions of existing touristic paths, opening the already accessible routes and spaces to people with all kinds of disability (physical, cognitive, sensorial), creating new accessible paths;
  • Sustaining networking between different organisations working on accessibility;
  • Offering training courses for museum employees to ensure the best welcoming and experience for people with disabilities.
