Abstract

The Canova Association is an international non-profit organization founded in 2001 in the medieval village of Canova, in Oira di Crevoladossola (Verbano-Cusio-Ossola, Italy). The main purpose and the goal of the association are the re-evaluation of local stone architecture and raising awareness and appreciation of its importance, all of it through educational, cultural and artistic events and activities. During these years, Mauricio Cesprini and Ken Marquardt have witnessed the gradual transformation of this historic enclave into a habitable environment following the teachings of the local building tradition.
