"An artefact that lasts over time is a sign of respect and gratitude towards those who have, with effort, built a territory and a balanced, harmonious and priceless landscape".
Moghegno is a village on the right bank of the Maggia river, annexed to the Municipality of Maggia since 2004.
Moghegno is distant from the main road network, but is already known in ancient times as a north-south transit area.
Moghegno is heir to a heritage of a naturalistic interest, is based on traditions and is testimonies about the rural population, handcraft production and sensibility about the environment.
Moghegno is a rich territory to be enhanced.
The project begins with a visit to the “Grotti” area, close to the slope behind the nucleus.
The simple and at the same time complex architecture of this area, built with few resources and great ingenuity, led us to create a foundation with the aim to preserve this enormous wealth that few know.
Upon further reflection,
we realized that the situation of deterioration created in the “Grotti” area could
be generalized to a considerable part of Moghegno’s territory: a territory full
of areas of interest, mostly linked to the past peasant and religious
tradition, but also to far-sightedness regarding industrial architecture.
