Nesta Italia

Nesta Italia is an independent, non-profit organisation whose aim is to introduce in Italy a new approach to social innovation, already developed and tested at the international level. We bring together creativity, emerging technologies and proven innovation methods to find solutions to the main challenges of our time. Our work is focused on the intersections of diverse sectors, because we believe that there lies the opportunity for innovation, by means of the circulation of ideas, resources and different approaches in tackling problems and challenges. Our team has diverse skills and backgrounds serving a common goal: backing bold ideas for happier, inclusive and connected societies.

Nesta Italia was founded in 2017 in Turin, with the support of Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo, one of the biggest philanthropic organisations in Italy, and Nesta, global innovation foundation based in the United Kingdom.
