The Micol Fontana Foundation is a non-profit association founded in 1994 that carries the name of its president who worked with determination to bring to fruition this project close to her heart as a tribute to her two sisters, Zoe and Giovanna, and to the world of fashion.

The Foundation is a registered member of the region of Lazio’s cultural institutions and has been declared of “notable historical interest” by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage. The endowment of the Sorelle Fontana atelier, comprising original dresses, sketches, a photographic collection, newspaper and magazines clippings, samples of embroidery and accessories, is conserved in its archive for future generations to consult and to view by way of visits, seminars, exhibitions and cultural meetings.
