Puncètè archaeological site
Having completed various projects, we are now focusing on the archaeological recovery of the Puncètè settlement, which, together with the “neighbourhoods” of Curzútt, San Barnárd and Pcian de Rungs, make up the ancient village of Monte Carasso, where our ancestors lived on a permanent basis until 1700.
One of the aims of the project, overseen by the Cantonal Office for Cultural Property, is to restore the traditional chestnut drying hut, put it back into operation, and include it in our Chestnut Project aimed predominantly at young people and school groups.
A total expenditure of CHF 402,000 has been earmarked for three separate projects:
- The restoration of the traditional chestnut drying hut.
- The restoration of the archaeological site.
- Photographic documentation of the project and exhibitions.
