Fondazione TIM  was created in 2008 to express the social commitment of the Group and its strong sense of responsibility towards the community.

It operates in the social field, with educational and support initiatives dedicated to the vulnerable and in any case disadvantaged categories and bands of the population; in the development of planning applied to education, training and scientific research; in the protection of the Italian historical and artistic and environmental heritage, developing innovative ways and means of enjoying and disseminating knowledge.

Listening and intercepting the needs of the community, anticipating solutions; stimulating ideas and projects within the company; supporting innovation and defining new training processes through the use of a "sustainable" technology model, are some of the main inspirations for the TIM Foundation.
