The Foundation

The Foundation, established in memory of Marc (1972-1993), strives to promote cultural understanding among the young generations and encourage intercultural dialogue in the Mediterranean world.

It awards annual grants in support of projects which enable young persons from Mediterranean countries to discover the diversity of other Mediterranean cultures. From 1994 to 2013 twenty two projects of candidates from seven Mediterranean countries have been awarded the grant.

Furthermore, in association with the Institut National d’Histoire de l’Art, in Paris, it awards the annual Marc de Montalembert Prize for a research in history of arts in the Mediterranean.

In its quest to further intercultural dialogue in the Mediterranean region, the Foundation is also the host of encounters and seminars on cultural subjects relevant to the region. Scholars and artists can also be hosted in residence. These activities take place at the Foundation’s seat in Rhodes, Greece.
