This is an international non-profit association founded in 2001 for the rehabilitation of rural stone architecture. It was founded in February 2001 after 12 years of work in the reconstruction and rehabilitation of Canova, a small village located in the Ossola Valley in Piedmont Northern Italy.
The region, rich in medieval stone architecture and megalithic sites, has been largely ignored by the local population leading to the rapid loss of an architectural and cultural heritage of inestimable value.
1. Educational Assistance – collaboration with international university programs, private interest groups, foundations and individuals.
2. Consulting Assistance – collaboration between proprietors of rural stone buildings and the Canova Association.
3. Artistic Assistance – the continuation of the arts, supporting the creation of visual, performing and literary works inspired by the medieval stone environment.
