High Culture in Valle Maggia, Ticino

Former Federal Councillor Flavio Cotti

President of the CIS Patronage Committee

I am committed to the realization of the Centro Internazionale di Scultura because I feel very strongly about both the valley’s future and the promotion of international three-dimensional art. There are several good reasons to support the development of the Centre: the important commitment of the artists who have been working in Peccia for many years, as well as the quality of the marble, unique in Switzerland, which will allow the establishment and management of the Centre in the future.


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, 176 Brick Buyers and 41 Supporters. For the realisation of the project it is necessary to raise a further 2.1 million Swiss Francs.
