Istituto per la Ricostruzione del Castello di Chucco - Zucco

The Institute for the Reconstruction of Chucco-Zucco Castle pursues since 1983 a multidisciplinary and interactive international project aiming at turning an historic site reduced in ruins into a container of scientific, cultural and recreational activities of the contemporary world, based on the exploitation of local resources.

The Cucagna castle, built in the 11th/12th century, is situated on a hill in the forest, about 30 min. walking distance from the small town of Faedis, Italy. Cucagna is a building site, unique example of philological reconstruction, open to young professionals of all the world interested in historical architecture, restoration and reconstruction, archaeology and history of art, traditional working techniques and materials.

Courses will take place in the castle and the nearby medieval hamlet of Stremiz.
