The Palazzo Boncompagni Foundation was established at the beginning of 2022 to manage the enhancement and restoration of the Palazzo, as well as to promote knowledge of the figure of Pope Gregory XIII, who was born there in 1501.
The building has been owned by the Benelli family since the end of the 19th Century. In 2008, Andrea Pizzighini Benelli began an intense restoration project which is, today, continued by his wife, Paola Pizzighini Benelli and by his children. The family is working to restore the prestigious residence to its former glory and thanks to this work, new discoveries come to light every day, all to be studied.
2022 is a special year because it is 450 years since the ascent to the Papal Throne of Ugo Boncompagni, Pope Gregory XIII, and the newly formed Foundation will celebrate this anniversary with a series of activities and events.
Every Saturday in December 2023, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Sunday, December 17, 2023, 11 a.m.
Palazzo Boncompagni is pleased to host the concert of the eighth edition of the Alberghini Prize, as part of the Domenica in musica festival curated by the Teatro Comunale di Bologna.
