Two factors have lain in the orientation of the work of Compagnia di San Paolo for over four and a half centuries: people and the common good . Even now, the common good and our focus on people are the yardstick whereby we interpret the world. These act as a compass to help us clearly decipher the challenges we experience today”, stated Francesco Profumo, Chair of the Turin-based Foundation. “The perspective Compagnia intends to adopt will not so much be that of a “recovery”, but rather of a “new construction”.  All public policy, especially the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR), will therefore act as a benchmark for our work, along with an understanding of the specific needs, special features, strengths, weaknesses and signs of transformation that we can interpret in the region we focus on: northwestern Italy – namely Piedmont, Liguria and Valle d’Aosta.
