Paolo Zonelli Scholarship

Born February 6, 1950 Paolo Zonelli has dedicated his entire life to caring for people with selflessness and generosity. A medical graduate despite being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the age of twenty-two, he devoted all his energy and time to others. A refined lover of art and culture Paolo Zonelli passed away on April 21, 2019.

Thanks to the generous donation of his wife Maria Donata Cecchinato starting in September 2023, each year, one candidate will be selected to participate in the Querini Stampalia Foundation’s internship program, with a scholarship of 5,000 euros for the duration of six months. This scholarship aimed at recent graduates in Economics, Management Engineering and Disciplines related to cultural management, allows them to participate in the administrative and development activities of the Foundation.

The selection for the year 2023/2024 is closed.


Each year there are more than 100 people who donate their time, passion and sensitivity to Querini, getting involved in its mission: to be a place for meeting and discussion, for knowledge and growth.
Join them. You will come into contact with many people of different languages and nationalities, but at the same time you will be able to broaden your interests, sharing the life of a historical institution, projected into the future: an engaging cultural and social experience in a lively and dynamic reality.
