The Fondazione Silvestro Marcucci - ONLUS was created in the year 2006 in Lucca, to honor the memory of Prof. Silvestro Marcucci, who suddenly passed away in the evening of December 26th, 2005.
Prof. Silvestro Marcucci, prominent expert of Kant and the kantianism, has left a vast collection of monographies, manuscripts and notes. Of interest is also the correspondence with philosophers and researchers of known reputation of his times.
The Foundation seat in Quiesa
To avoid the lost of this vast cultural heritage and to make it available to all interested researchers, it has been decided to create this Foundation, located in Quiesa of Massarosa (Lucca), birth village of the Professor.
