LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
The Foundation, which was formed in 2006 by María Cristina Masaveu Peterson, was created with the goal of promoting culture, training and research in Spain, and particularly in Asturias, based on the House of Masaveu’s patronage and sponsorship tradition, just as the founder María Cristina Masaveu Peterson did throughout her life with the utmost intensity and discretion.
In this manner, and in an increasingly complex, global and changing environment, the Foundation’s main objective is to promote culture, education and research as a means to achieve a better society and, therefore, one of the cornerstones of its activity is the comprehensive training of individuals, along with making it possible for the greatest number of people to access and enjoy cultural and artistic events, based on our deep conviction that the technical and humanistic facet is a fundamental part of such training and greatly enriches our society.
There is another important chapter that we must not forget: the support offered to research in important fields such as oncology, ophthalmology and environmental care, through projects to develop decontaminants.
Through this Website we would like to provide information on all the activities carried out. We want it to be a means to disseminate our activities in the Foundation’s different areas, based on the transparency of relevant data concerning the Foundation, and a means to communicate with society as a whole. At the same time, we would like it to be a useful instrument for those who, in one way or the other, are, or feel, part of such an inspiring project as that put into practice by María Cristina Masaveu Peterson, a project that we are so proud of having the responsibility to develop.
