back The Not Vital foundation

The Not Vital foundation was set up on 2 September 2003 with the aim of preserving the cultural assets of the Engadin region and promoting exchange between different cultures. (the familiar – the unfamiliar). The declared aim of the foundation is the collection of all Ladin and Romansh printed material (old books). Books that were printed in the 17th and 18th centuries, mostly in the Lower Engadin, and that are now scattered across the world are to return to their place of origin. The foundation also owns an art collection (works from the Not Vital collection and works by Not Vital). Exhibitions and publications are also in planning.
