The main purpose of the foundation La Fabbrica del Cioccolato is the organisation and development of cultural activities in the ex-industrial complex Cima Norma, located in the town of Dangio-Torre, in Blenio Valley (Canton Ticino, Switzerland).

The programmatic content of the curatorial project named “foreignness” is structured as an artistic laboratory analysing the interaction between art, in its various expressive forms, and the territory, intended as evolving cultural, social and political heritage. The analysis is also focused on the impact on the social fabric of Blenio Valley, which has experienced, over time, the opposition of different economic and cultural contexts, both local and global.

The foundation’s members are:
Giovanni Casella Piazza (President)
Bruno Brunetti
Simon Berz
