    Cultural promotion projects for the Calanca Valley


RossArte is a regeneration project by means of contemporary art and architecture. The goal is to interpret through art and architecture a historical moment tensed between globalization and historical values. Rossa, and the Calanca valley, is an urban planning laboratory that considers art as the founding element of our future cities. The city understood as a total work of art. Rossa's intervention starts from the premise of the integration between art (in which to live), nature and historical context. Art is permanently inserted into the existing fabric, it is a public and civil work, it becomes a space of life; architecture and the design of the city.

The Calanca Valley on the move


The Swiss Alpine municipality of Rossa sits at an altitude of 1100 msl. in the Calanca valley in the Italian speaking part of Grisons and is home to an extraordinary biodiversity of flora and fauna.

Every gesture, every intervention in this magical place must refer to its spirit of happy survival, be respectful to the environment and people, sustainable, and daring for its creative and enduring reach.
