The Fondazione Internazionale per la Scultura was founded on September 2011 as a public-private partnership (PPP) thanks to the joint efforts of private supporters, the Commune of Lavizzara and Fondazione Vallemaggia. It „aims to build and operate the Centro Internazionale di Scultura (CIS) in Peccia in order to promote three-dimensional artistic works by using Peccia marble or other materials“, according to its charter. At the moment, the construction of the Centro is in its final stages to be opened in 2020 with an exhibition by José Dávila.
