The foundation

The Foundation Casa Rossa has been founded on February 5th, 2009. Its goal is to publicize the big historical and cultural heritage of the famous building “Casa Rossa” in Alberobello.

Building on the recent agreement of February 16th, 2008 between the Italian and US government to conserve and restore the memorial sites, the Foundation has the purpose of reviving the building by creating a Shoah museum, organizing exhibitions and events related to its history and to Land art. It will also revive local architectural and building techniques, e.g. by offering courses on analyzing and handling limestones, in line with the traditional building techniques used when Casa Rossa was completed.

Members of the Foundation will include local government, banks, and not for profit organizations.
