Founded by Mr. Patrizio Paoletti, The Paoletti Foundation is committed to discovering new models of knowledge that support mankind in its own course of development from the perspective of lifelong learning. Its mission is to develop scientifically grounded educational programs that can help the new generation to deal successfully with change and the social environment. It empowers the communities and it promotes global well-being understood as a state of physical, emotional, mental and social health. The Foundation sees schools as an effective tool for improving the quality of life.
For 14 years, the Patrizio Paoletti Foundation has conducted cutting-edge research in neurosciences and psycho-pedagogy in collaboration with a broad network of scholars and departments of top-ranked universities (such as Bar Ilan, Israel or La Sapienza of Rome, Italy) in order to define new effective educational models. The PTM is defined as a Rational and Global Vision of Learning favoring development as well as personal and intellectual growth by supporting the discovery of talents and aspirations. The methodology aims therefore to give specific competencies for the empowerment of human relations.
The Foundation works in an international context and its guiding principles are defined by the UNESCO, the World Health Organization and the European Union.

WHO: It is necessary to promote the acquisition and the reinforcement of cognitive, emotional and relational abilities, which allow people to operate with competence both on an individual and a social level (1993).
EUROPEAN UNION: The European Union has among its objectives the promotion of the well-being of its citizens, and has the aim of adapting education and training to the needs of its citizens in all phases of their lives (Lisbon 2000) of improving their knowledge, abilities and skills on a personal, social and occupational level (2001).
