The survey of arts and antiquities institutes and places of culture not owned by the state is part of a memorandum of understanding between the regions, the Ministry of Cultural Heritage, and ISTAT, which aims to set up an integrated information system covering museums and cultural heritage. The survey includes a form to be filled in by cultural practitioners, in order to collect specific information about the characteristics, resources and most significant statistics concerning each cultural asset. When collected and processed, the information will be used to update the databank created for the regional census in 2003.
Fitzcarraldo works with Fondazione ATER and Eccom at a research project on the professions of the cultural sector in the province of Trentino: a first step for setting up a cultural observatory useful to plan and to support the decision making of the province of Torino.
We took part in a research project commissioned by the European Parliament concerning street arts in Europe. We have researched together with Association Horslesmurs, Judith Neisse and the University of Bourgogne - Centre of Research on Culture, Museums and the Diffusion of Knowledge (CRCMD) to understand the actual situation of street arts and artists, the value and acknowledgement (e.g. as art and tool for social inclusion) granted in the various EU countries. The research has provided the EU Parliament with recommendations for the promotion of street creativity and new forms of art. study

Fact-finding survey on the Italian market of documentary film promoted by Associazione Documentaristi Italiani Doc/it within the agreement with Ministero delle Attività Produttive and l'ICE and carried put in cooperation with Isicult. The aim is to design the scenery of the whole system of documentary film in Italy by analysing different target groups and structural aspects and to identify critical points and potentialities. The survey will then focus on some regional case studies about producing documentary film in Piedmont, Emilia Romagna and Puglia. The Osservatorio carries out the survey on the firms producing in Piedmont.
In 2005, the Osservatorio Culturale del Piemonte – the cultural monitoring centre of Piedmont – enters its seventh year of activity. The prime task of these years has been to organise systematic data collection, to establish stable sources of information, and assess survey methods that can be repeated year after year. The observations that have emerged from an analysis of the data collected over the past seven years have been brought together and summarised in a report that can be consulted and downloaded by all those who are directly or indirectly interested. report
This study will provide a general overview of all that is involved in live shows, and the ability of the Internet to meet users' expectations and thus create value. The individual characteristics of live shows and the various artistic and production environments they contain, the pathways followed and cases selected are all designed to reveal the situation and indicate possible areas of development. A summary of the study is available in the 2/2004 issue of Economia della Cultura: "Dal byte al palcoscenico. Internet, spettacolo dal vivo, utenza".
By means of a census and mapping what is available through the associations, the survey will give an overall picture of the dimensions of the sector, as well as more complex aspects such as trends, opportunities and constraints in voluntary cultural work. This will include the level of integration, functionality, and divergences with regard to local authorities and cultural organisations, training requirements and members' expectations, the nature and type of resources, and the assistance (economic, logistic, regulatory, advisory) required by the associations. report (in Italian)
A research project promoted by Fondazione Fitzcarraldo with the City of Turin, and by Adfarm and Chicas, Associazione Didee, Associazione Xenia Ensemble, and Cooperativa La Talea. The project will devise actions to assist women working at non-amateur level in the entertainment business (in particular, dance, music and theatre), with the twofold objective of increasing the visibility and quality of artistic performance and management, and fostering the growth of innovative forms of expertise among women in the sector.
The Census – promoted and supported by Regione Piemonte- was carried out by the Osservatorio (Fondazione Fitzcarraldo and IRES Piemonte) in cooperation with ISTAT - the Italian National Institute for Statistics - between September 2002 and January 2003. Following the first phase of data collection, a second phase aimed to identify minimal standards for museums. The previous national census dated back to 1992. The aim was not only to conduct an accurate a census of all cultural heritage located in the territory, but also to set up methodological and statistical tools that will be consistent with those applied at national level. It is also necessary to quantify existing heritage in order to build up an improved understanding of needs, occupational percentages, employment opportunities, and costs.
