High Culture in Valle Maggia, Ticino

Theo E. Brenner

FIS President

Convinced that all art which engenders definitive results is itself magical, I consider the creation of the Centro Internazionale di Scultura in Peccia, in the upper part of the Maggia valley, a wonderful undertaking of lasting value.


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, 2.9 million Swiss Francs have been pledged by 6 Foundations, 97 Friends, 173 Brick Buyers and 41 Supporters. For the realisation of the project it is necessary to raise a further 2.1 million Swiss Francs.
