Lizori Project (Umbria)

“Lìzori” is a medieval hamlet in Umbria, the green heart of Italy. With centuries of glorious past behind and a more recent period of total neglect after WWII, the hamlet experienced its rebirth in the second half of the 1970s, thanks to the initiative of a group of Italian architects, engineers, businessmen, artisans and professionals coordinated by Antonio Meneghetti.
The entire recovery of the hamlet was undertaken and accomplished, returning a true historical/architectural jewel to the public use, that soon became an international art, culture and education lab, under the sign of timeless, humanistic values.  In this hamlet, the Foundation promotes educational activities, artistic and cultural events, also at international level.

To love Lizori…

The hamlet’s redevelopment, Lizori Project, was strictly carried out through private funding. Dozens of private individuals – united by their enthusiasm and passion – invested their money not only to purchase and refurbish derelict properties for personal use, but also to restore all public areas so that they could, once again, become available to the community. All this was achieved without subsidies or sponsors, without any public or third party funding whatsoever, with absolutely no speculative intent.


“An Α for Lizori” is a project fostered by the Antonio Meneghetti Scientific and Humanistic Research Foundation (a Swiss non-profit foundation).

You will be able to get an Α with a minimal donation which will help further development of the Lizori hamlet. All project’s revenues will be used by the Foundation  to support culture, scientific and art events organized in respect of those humanistic values that brought about the rebirth of this hamlet.

The Α in this project was created precisely in the Umbria region, the land where Lizori stands. The age-old pottery art of Deruta was used, applying the liquid clay pouring technique, which makes this item valuable and sophisticated.
