Good Practice

Spazi Art e Cultura

Lumbrein

© Ramun Capaul

The project is aimed at creating a disperse art and culture region in the Val Lumnezia. It is to include an exhibition space and an art workshop, and enable the use of historical buildings for residential purposes, which would in turn represent a sensible use of historical structures. A feasibility study is to be drawn up in order to realise this idea. For this decisive step, which at the moment is essential for our project, the association requires starting capital.
