Casa Mahler Casa Mahler

Mahler Foundation

Mahler Foundation supports residencies at Casa Mahler and works closely with Spoleto's Festival dei Due Mondi.

The mission statement reads: "Gustav Mahler has touched untold lives through his music, communicating in his songs and symphonies the joys and calamities of simply being alive and inspiring a deeply moving vision of the human condition. Many of us have somehow been transformed by this experience. As we’ve hurtled more than 1/6th of the way through the 21st century, we are now able to perceive the challenges that will confront our civilization for successive generations. And we are also able to perceive how Mahler’s music, vision and innovative spirit can unite us to ‘…rebuild the broken spiritual bridges between the peoples.’ Through our support of projects in the contemporary arts, environment and music education, we foster community, refresh our awareness of nature as the inspiration for creativity and speak to humanity’s common purposes."
