This work deepens the current doctrines concerning the corporate governance, moving from the international theoretical concepts to the empirical implementations. Since the analysis is not limited to for-profit companies but includes the grant-making organizations and in particular the Italian Foundations of banking origin, this work provides an innovative interdisciplinary approach but particularly a specific contribution to fill the existent gap in the literature.The comparison of the international systems of governance both in for-profit and more specifically in grant-making organizations can provide to the reader a complete vision on the real necessities that must be satisfied in order to achieve efficient systems of corporate governance. Furthermore, the analysis carried out on the current governance framework of Italian Foundations of banking origin can express a valuable contribution to solve important issues concerning their relation with stakeholders, the asset management and the fundamental role they play for social and economic development.
