At its meeting on November 5, 2013, the Artistic Advisory Board and the Board of Directors unanimously decided to award the first Hans Werner Henze Foundation scholarship to the Italian composer Riccardo Panfili. This involves a monthly payment for two years.

The moving ceremony took place in the morning of October 4, 2013, assisted by members of the University, numerous friends and colleagues of the Maestro in the Aula de’ Battilani of the University of Florence, accompanied by some filmed interviews and guitarist Duccio Bianchi, who performed Henze’s Drei Tentos.

The Hans Werner Henze Foundation goes online with its website. The composer's biographical data and a complete list of works are now generally available; a list of publications is under construction, as well as a calendar of events. Of course, the Foundation's activities will also be reported here.

In June 2007, composer Hans Werner Henze made first considerations about a foundation in order to make sure, that after his demise, his oeuvre and his educational impulses and initiatives would continue to live and to be spread.
