Research and divulgation

The Sidney Sonnino Study Centre was set up in December 2005 on the initiative of Baron Alessandro De Renzis Sonnino and his wife Caterina, with the support of academics from the Universities of Florence and Pisa. Its aim is to make known Sonnino’s thought and work in relation to the issues and personalities of his time, giving rise to activities of various kinds. These include the promotion and organisation of conferences and study seminars, research and publications, as well as a project for the retrieval and cataloguing of all the sources, archive and other, related to Sonnino, also working in liaison with the competent organs of the Ministry for the Cultural Heritage.
The Chairman of the Study Centre is Professor Pier Luigi Ballini.
