Historical-Cultural Itineraries

On Saturday 5th August
From 10 am to 5 pm

“To contribute to the safeguard, preservation and promotion of the patrimony of arts, nature and Italian landscape.“
The 28th April 1975 the FAI – Fondo Ambiente Italiano – was established with this clear and worthy aim. The FAI is a non-profit foundation that, thanks to an idea of Elena Croce (daughter of the famous philosopher Benedetto Croce), was determined to emulate the English National Trust. That 28th April Giulia Mara Mozzoni Crespi, Renato Bazzoni, Alberto Predieri and Franco Russoli signed the deed of incorporation and the statute of the FAI. They were strong of an enthusiasm and an ambition that, in that time, were travelling on the wings of a splendid dream. After 40 years, this dream becomes truth thanks to the dedication of all the people that decided to take part in this big project and thanks to the generosity of a lot of private citizens, companies and institutions, which supported and support every day our work.
The FAI Giovani is composed of boys and girls from 18 to 35 years old, that voluntarily make available their time, knowledge and professionalism, in order to realise events and projects that become moments of conviviality and reflection about culture and environment.

In compliance with these principles, the FAI Giovani Group of Valsesia decided with enthusiasm to participate to the Sculturando event, that is by itself vehicle of culture and art.

During the event the participants will be able to admire the Cellio church with its bell tower – where the presence of the “Holy Nail” painting, realised by Tanzio, is already a good reason why you should go there – and the Breia church, dedicated to Saint John the Baptist, with its frescos realised by Lorenzo Peracino the old. Places and paintings will be described by some young guides during the entire day of Saturday 5th August from 10 am to 5 pm.

The Fai Giovani Group of Valsesia thanks the Pro Loco Valle Cellio for the invitation and thanks also Don Angelo Porzio for the hospitality in his churches, the most beautiful of Bassa Valle del Sesia.
