High Culture in Valle Maggia, Ticino

An International Centre for Sculpture: This is good and important. A world without art, without imagination, is inconceivable for me. To pass on the art of sculpture is a wonderful responsibility. Sometimes I am almost wistfully nostalgic when I think that in our theatre art, as important as it is, all that remains after a performance are memories, whereas a sculpture survives for centuries. May this be a successful project.

50% Canton Ticino
The Centro Internazionale di Scultura is taking shape: The funding of 5 million Swiss Francs from the canton Ticino has been designated as a 'Challenge Grant', meaning that the 'Fondazione Internazionale per la Scultura' will need to raise an equal amount from donors and sponsors to cover the estimated project costs of 10 million Swiss Francs. So far, 1.7 million Swiss Francs have been pledged by 6 Foundations, 81 Friends, 141 Brick Buyers and 38 Supporters. For the realisation of the project it is necessary to raise a further 3.3 million Swiss Francs by the end of December 2015.
