2021 - 2023

Fondazione Monte dei Paschi di Siena


At the end of 2020, when the continuation of the health emergency put many cultural organizations at risk, the Monte dei Paschi di Siena Foundation promoted an initiative aimed at cultural businesses and associations of Siena for the participation in a path of empowerment and growth, the RESET Call

The general objective of the Call was the overall strengthening of the skills of the operators, with particular reference to the adoption of business models and tools by the cultural institutions of the Siena province.

To do this, the Monte dei Paschi di Siena Foundation has chosen the Dinamica network of consultants, of which Melting Pro is part, which proposed the self-assessment model for cultural organizations and businesses as an initial analysis step through which to identify the needs and growth potential of the cultural organizations of Siena interested in responding to the Call.

In 2021, based on the results of these analyses, the organizations developed projects to strengthen and develop their structures which were evaluated by the Monte dei Paschi di Siena Foundation to select some projects to be awarded by financial support.

In 2022, a new phase of Reset opened which wants the expansion of the cultural “community of practice” of Siena and the organization of “thematic workshops”, discussion tables in which organizations can find the first stimuli for shared design paths.

RESET’s 2022 activities are:

  • Community of practice meetings;
  • Crossing Siena (May-July), appointments with national experts and exemplary cases together with other local operators, active in other fields different from the cultural one, to encourage the knowledge and the activation of innovative collaborations;
  • Oltre Siena, public conference to present the project;
  • Futuro Reset (August-October), co-design paths for the participating organizations – from each table will be developed a project idea which will be implemented with the support of the Foundation.
