A native of Italy and longtime resident of the United States, Veronica Bulgari has coupled business skills with her passion for art and music and her commitment to civic, cultural, and educational causes. She currently represents the Bulgari company at special corporate events, speaking on its heritage and history. For many years she held managerial positions with its jewelry and fragrance divisions.
Veronica graduated from Duke University with a BA in Art History and Political Science, and received her MA from the Courtauld Institute of Art. She served on Duke’s Trinity Board of Visitors and now serves on the boards of the American Foundation for the Courtauld Institute and the National Academy Museum and School in New York.
A collector of photography and contemporary art, she has helped sponsor several exhibits, including “Luigi Ghirri: Kodachrome” at the Aperture Foundation and “Piranesi as Designer” at Cooper Hewitt. She cofounded and is president of the Washington Square Park Conservancy in New York.
Through Carnegie Hall Notables, Veronica helps to promote classical music to younger audiences and to engage their support for the Weill Music Institute’s philanthropic mission. She is a board member of Piano Outreach of New York, which offers underprivileged children professional instruction in piano, music theory, and music history.
In the summer of 1985, Veronica interned at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection – an invaluable experience that she still cherishes. She is delighted that internships are now given in her name.
