The Department of Philosophy and Cultural Heritage (DFBC) aims to enable students in all disciplines with the development of interpretive, critical,analytical and communicative skills necessary to personal intellectual and moral development, cultural literacy, and achievement in the complexities of life in the 21st century.

The Department aims to foster among faculty and students a climate of mutual respect and support for engaging in scholarship, learning, and service that embraces diversity, respect for historic traditions, and the pursuit of knowledge in historic and contemporary approaches to philosophy, history of arts, education science and sociology.

In the field of philosophy, the primary mission is to provide some of the foundations of such a liberal arts education. In the field of cultural heritage, the main goal is to promote the study of the preservation of the cultural heritage and pass it on to future generations by providing conditions for the society to get to know and use it.

Since 2010 Ca’ Foscari commits to sustainability through the programme Sustainable Ca' Foscari and in September 2014 the Sustainable Campus project was launched to promote and develop sustainable actions and projects in all the university seats.

Following the interest shown by internal and external users of the University towards the recent editions of BookCrossing, the Department of Philosophy and Cultural Heritage has decided to reserve this activity a permanent space at its headquarters (3rd floor, Malcanton Marcorà Palace) . Anyone can give and take books free of charge, participating to a virtuous circle based on re-use of resources and knowledge sharing.

Furthermore, DFBC students can acquire Sustainability Competencies: voluntary based activities dedicated to economic, social or environmental sustainability. The student must discuss with the contact professor of the involved Department to identify an activity, such as courses, workshops, interviews, research..., and the nature of its final proposal. Once the activity carried out and the final proposal approved, the teacher will register 1 extracurrricular CFU in the student’s plan of study.
