The Amadeo Bordiga Foundation was formed out of the will of Mrs. Antonietta De
Meo, Bordiga¹s widow, and formally registered by the Ministry of Interior¹s
Decree of 5.8.1998. The founding members were people of various political and
educational backgrounds and careers. They undertook to fulfill  Mrs. De Meo¹s
will, many of them being her friends, and to pursue the common aims set out in
the Constitution.
"The Foundation¹s aim " art. 2 goes "is as follows: to highlight the figure of
Amadeo Bordiga, the founder of the Commmunist Party of Italy at the Leghorn
Congress (January 1921), from all complex and interconnected humane, cultural
and ideological aspects, in the frame of the National and International
Proletarian Movement; to underline the man¹s moral and intellectual strictness
in an ever-changing Italian and world situation; the man¹s inflexibility of his
fight for the Marxist doctrine and programme". To this end the Foundation "grants
Scholarships and funds and promotes the following: a) historical research work
b) publications related to above aim c) the rearrangement, listing and
preservation of all existing material to be enriched further with the collection
of any documents anywhwre". The Foundation also fosters "the relations with the
more important librairies both at home and abroad with a wiew to documenting the
presence of Amadeo Bordiga; the publication of his little known or hard-to-find
writings, the reprint of his writings compiled at different times and the
editing his complete works. The books and documents will be kept in a
library/Archives to be arranged in the very house at Formia, in which the
testatrix lived with Amadeo Bordiga". Now this is the Foundation¹s Registered
