La Streccia – Soglio

The connection with Soglio led Ugo and Elena Giacometti to acquire two historical buildings (which had been owned by Elena's family for many generations) and to rent a third building, making it partially accessible to the public. The aim was not to create a real museum, but to open the doors of their house from time to time, giving people the opportunity to see with their own eyes how people lived in Soglio until the beginning of the last century. In this way one can better understand the identity of the place.

Main objectives
- Conservation and maintenance of buildings
- Building access for the public and guided tours
- Equipment, exhibitions and events
- Possible division and rent of the rooms
- Appreciation and sustainable development of the village
