Named after Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778), an eminent Italian graphic artist and architect, the Piranesi Foundation funds various activities in the fields of graphic art and architecture in an attempt to raise the quality of Slovenian architecture and spacial planning and thus affect positive change of the environment itself. The main purpose of the Piranesi Foundation is publishing the Piranesi Magazine, and organizing exhibitions and other commemorative publications.


Publishing projects

In 2003 the foundation published a monograph publication on the Slovene architect Vojteh Ravnikar (1943–2010), entitled Arhitektura = Architecture / Vojteh Ravnikar. The book coincided with the retrospective exhibition of Ravnikar's work at Cankarjev dom Culture and Congress Centre realised in October 2003 in collaboration with Piranesi Foundation.

A new English language guide to architectural walks and tours entitled Let's See the City Ljubljana was published in 2008 addressing families and children through playful illustrations, intriguing stories, short facts, and beautiful photos. The book, written by Špela Kuhar and Robert Potokar and designed by Domen Fras, received the 2009 award for the most beautiful Slovene publication at the Slovene Book Fair.
