An international sculpture center is being built in a small mountain village with just 200 inhabitants in Switzerland. The valley, already known for its Peccia marble, will now be complemented with all the disciplines and materials of sculpture. With the “Centro Internazionale di Scultura” and the “Scuola di Scultura” Peccia, located in the Maggia Valley of Ticino, will have a training and meeting place for contemporary sculpture that is unique throughout Europe.
