“The Arpa Foundation” is a charitable organization, brainchild of Professor Franco Mosca, Director of the 1st Department of General Surgery at the University of Pisa. The Honorary President is the world-renown vocalist Maestro Andrea Bocelli.

Why and How…
Medical education and research are the stones of medical advancement.
The Arpa Foundation contributes to medical education and research in various fields within the health professions: surgery, oncology, new technologies, transplant surgery and health economics. Arpa supports students, doctors and nurses from abroad, especially those from countries in the developing world, both to complete studies at home and to continue their professional development in Italy. We also maintain close academic relations and collaborate with many equivalent overseas institutions. Arpa has several projects in progress for the treatment of serious endemic diseases in underprivileged areas of the world (e.g. AIDS). These opportunities for continuing education and research are maintained and assured through various specialist training facilities, in turn supported by Arpa and constituted under the 1st Department of General Surgery at the “Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria” of Pisa (University of Pisa).
