The Center for Studies on Federalism (CSF), established in 2000, is today a participation Foundation , with the Compagnia di San Paolo and the Universities of Turin , Pavia and Milan as founders and the Polytechnic of Turin as co-founder .

The issue of federalism has increasingly attracted the attention of scholars, political decision-makers and public opinion: with its reform proposals both upwards (supranational federalism) and downwards (sub-national federalism), it represents an original and innovative solution to the problem of the distribution of powers and resources among several levels of government. 

The CSF intends to be a policy-oriented think tank , which carries out interdisciplinary research , documentation, information on the transformation processes brought about by internal and supranational federalism, on the developments of regional and continental integration (above all the European Union), on problems relating to the governance of globalization.

Housed in the new headquarters of the Collegio Carlo Alberto , in Turin, the CSF works in collaboration with the founding universities, with other Italian and international universities and research centers, with private and public bodies interested in federalist issues. 

The library of the Center, specialized in federalism and equipped with about 14,000 volumes and a rich newspaper library, in 2013 merged with the Gianni Merlini European Library, on the Luigi Einaudi Campus of the University of Turin. Since October 2016 it has become the Gianni Merlini European Section of  the Norberto Bobbio Library.
