Background and aims
The name of the Foundation is based on St. Clare who was a woman of great vision. She also represents the virtues wisdom, courage and temperance, the virtues highlighted by Raphael in the Stanza della Signatura in the Vatican. On this fresco women represent these virtues, who are surrounded by angels representing love, hope and faith.
