It's for all of us
Founded in 2009, the Sylvia Ioannou Foundation is based in Liechtenstein. It incorporated its founder’s collection and to date contains more than 3,000 rare books and maps. The collection is constantly being enriched and is one of the most important in the world regarding Cyprus. This priceless legacy has now been made available to all interested parties through the Foundation’s publications, its research and educational programs, its conferences and its other activities.
A representative sample of the Collection has been digitised, posted online and made available to researchers through the Foundation’s website.
The Sylvia Ioannou Foundation addresses with the same sense of respect and responsibility both the academic and the educational community; collectors and institutions; and anyone wishing to partake of this inexhaustible source of knowledge. The Foundation is not just its Collection. It is also a cradle of information and memory which generates new ideas and actively supports young scholars through its annual scholarship program, thus contributing to education and culture.
