Civita Group

The name of our Group – Civita –  originates from the Latin word ‘Civitas’, which refers to the city as a place of belonging and civil coexistence. This valuable idea has always inspired Civita, which was founded in 1987 with the aim to tackle with the decline and deterioration of Civita di Bagnoregio, a medieval village in northern Lazio.

Today, Civita is made up of two organisations, with different areas of specialisations and operations: the Civita Group, headed by Civita Cultura Holding, and Civita Association (the activity of Association are available on the website

Two souls with a common project. A dual entity pursuing the same vision while promoting two different missions with a common objective: bringing art closer to an ever wider public.

Following the positive results achieved over the last decade and through our international outreach, the Civita Group is now playing a leading role in the cultural heritage sector, all the more so given the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Civita Group is a founding member of AICC – Associazione Imprese Culturali e Creative del Sistema Confindustria. We have operational offices in Rome, Milan and Palermo, and a deep-rooted presence in the rest of Italy and in particular in Turin, Florence, Naples, and Syracuse. We have established a strong presence also in Europe  –  particularly in France –  and in the Middle East  –  particularly in Saudi Arabia.

Civita Cultura Holding was established to take advantage of new opportunities for companies to take action in the cultural heritage sector, with the aim to create a network that provides an integrated range of services. Civita Group’s Holding Company is the meeting point where professional operators, foundations and several other stakeholders can find a collective dimension where art becomes enterprise.
