In line with the ideas of its founder, Luisa Toffoloni Mariani, the medical and social care services developed by the Mariani Foundation are aimed at:
• relieving suffering caused to the child and the child's family by disease or neurological disability;
• supporting the clinical centres involved in childhood neurological disorders.
The viewpoint for every action taken is based on the principles of integration and support of the staff and of the clinical establishments operating in this field.
The main beneficiary of the funds is the “Carlo Besta” Neurological Institute, which, as laid down in the statute, is the Foundation’s privileged partner.
By 2010 the service projects are selected through a biennial call.
