centro studi politici e strategici machiavelli, think tank della destra italiana

THE CONSERVATIVE THINK TANK

The Machiavelli Centre, founded in 2017 and based in Florence, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote traditional values and conservative policies. In an era of great changes, we pick up sovereignist aims and make concrete policies out of them.

COMBINING REFLECTION AND PRAXIS: HOW NICCOLÒ MACHIAVELLI SYMBOLIZES OUR MISSION

Emblem of the scholar who does not shut himself up in the proverbial ivory tower but places his competence at the service of the community: this is Niccolò Machiavelli. Our symbol is the fox and the lion, for the Florentine icons of the qualities necessary for the statesman: strength and intelligence. Virtues necessary to today's politician no less than to the Renaissance prince.

"SUADERE ATQUE AGERE": OUR RESEARCH IS DESIGNED TO TURN INTO POLITICAL ACTION

"Persuade and act" is the motto written in our symbol. Study and analysis are never aimed at themselves, but rather at making public opinion more aware and at assisting the action of politicians and decision-makers. Research and publications are constantly accompanied by events, blogs and other forms of dissemination among citizens and politicians.
