About Us

The Foundation, the Academic Institute, the Library and the Museum were born in 2020, in an unusual as it is difficult period for the history of humanity as a whole and derive from the Simmetria Study Center, founded by Claudio Lanzi in 1975, and from the homonymous Academy and Association, born in 1999.

The Foundation has two salient activities: the first is exquisitely didactic and formative and is carried out by the Simmetria Institute; the second in embodied by the Library Museum, which has collected particular works and texts received as donations from the Lanzi familiy and other friends with similar interests (Hersoch, Partini, Fontecedro, etc.). These objects are now available to the public.

The philosophical-symbolic character of the collection means that the whole is set up with “Renaissance” and at the same time “medieval” criteria, in the sense that science, philosophy, mathematics, medicine, metaphysics, religiosity, hermeticism and alchemy are part of a single doctrinal corpus.

The Library Museum in Attigliano is and offers therefore an almost unique itinerary of its kind, in which the subtle but explicit connections between works and books have been developed with great love, thus creating a museum-library based on thematics and not divided into separated sections.

The following authors have participated in the publications, conferences, lectio magistralis, conferences of Simmetria, to whom all our gratitude and gratitude goes:
