The Festival


Starting this year, the cultural programme proposed by La Fabbrica del cioccolato Foundation, housed in the former buildings of the Cima Norma factory in the Blenio Valley (Southern Swiss Canton of Ticino) will be enriched by way of a new and important event: the Cima Norma Art FestivalTo be held in the suggestive Jugenstil architectural complex of this old chocolate factory, the end of August 2020 will in fact see the first edition of an annual interdisciplinary event which each year will be concerned with themes of day-to-day importance and relevance. The main objective of this cultural Festival, artistically directed by Elio Schenini, is to bring together artists who represent the most diverse artistic disciplines in the somewhat secluded but close contact with the nature of this disused industrial building, in this way offering the public the occasion to reflect on the important themes that concern mankind and its relationship with the world.
