The Antonio de Noli Academic Society is an international and interdisciplinary scientific-research activity formed by scholars and institutions with cultural interest or academic production pursuing: Biographical, geographic-historical, naval-historical, military-historical, archaeological, genealogical, social-anthropological, and sociological studies around the discoveries of Antonio de Noli – the Genoese navigator and discoverer of Cape Verde Islands - and the societies and institutions which ensued in the aftermath of the discoveries in which he participated.
By manifestly choosing the scientific perspective, the society wishes to emphasize the fact-oriented character of the research that members of the society conduct and promote.
The activities of the society serve solely scientific, educational and cultural purposes and are devoid of pecuniary intent.
