Partnership between the Museo del Paesaggio
and the Banca di Intra non-profit foundation

The Museo del Paesaggio has entered into a partnership with the Banca di Intra non-profit foundation with a view to implementing projects to monitor and highlight the heritage of the Verbano Cusio Ossola area (Read press release of 15 January 2008 – Italian). The first concrete result of the partnership is the new heating system which has been installed in Palazzo Viani-Dugnani, where the Museum has historically been located. This major, long-awaited improvement will enable the Museum to stay open to the public all year (Read press release of 22 February 2008 – Italian).


The partnership is the result of a complete convergence of aims between the Museum and the Foundation, and has the goal of publicising knowledge of the area and the values it embodies (its heritage of art, architecture, environment and landscape).
The partners intend to prompt intelligent and specific action to recover and put to the fullest use our common values by activating projects in the field, research, exhibitions and publications.

The first events on the agenda are:
  • To promote knowledge of the heritage of our area: two research projects, each to be followed by a publication, on 15th century frescoes in the Lake Orta area and on the wayside shrines of the Ossola valleys;
  • To promote an understanding of the landscape: highlighting three viewpoints in the VCO province, in the Lake Maggiore area in particular;
  • To restore traditional architecture: a census of rural buildings in the province and a pilot scheme for their restoration, using the experience of similar projects performed on a national scale.
