Magistra Foundation was established in 2011, at a time of crisis in the regional associations framework in Uruguay. One of the aims of the foundation is to maintain a strong bond with Italy and for this reason it is a point of reference for various Italian and local institutions as it promotes exchange activities in different sectors. Magistra has promoted and implemented activities of national and departmental interest in Uruguay.
