The Fondazione di Studi di Storia dell’Arte Roberto Longhi was created in 1971 by testamentary disposition of the eminent Italian art historian Roberto Longhi (1890-1970) to promote and further the study of art history by keeping his cultural legacy and methods alive. Longhi bequeathed his art collection, photo archives and library “for the benefit of future generations” in his Florentine villa in via Fortini, which is now the site of the foundation bearing his name.
