In 2011 the Ente CRF and the Florence City Council set up the Fondazione Teatro della Pergola to take over the activity of the theatre. The purpose of this Foundation is to maintain, protect and enhance the monumental, historical and cultural legacy that the Teatro della Pergola in Florence has represented and expressed since the year of its foundation (1652) in every sector and sphere of dramatic and live performance. In addition to preserving the historic and cultural heritage of the theatre, the Foundation also intends to create an International Centre of Dramatic Art which can bring together training activities and the bibliographical and audio-visual archives.
As well as the normal dramatic activities, the Foundation has also programmed a series of actions specifically aimed at young people. These consist of theatre and theatrical education courses with final internships hosted in the theatre itself. It also promotes special campaigns aimed at young people offering season tickets and ordinary tickets at prices designed to encourage students to frequent the shows programmed at the theatre.
