In 1989, the Canton of Ticino and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) of Zurich established, respectively, the Monte Verità Foundation-which to this day manages the Monte Verità Conference and Cultural Centre and the Congressi Stefano Franscini, a platform for international scientific conferences at the highest level.
