Lénoard Gianadda

Léonard Gianadda has created a unique place dedicated to art, both indoors and outdoors.

Birth of the Pierre Gianadda Foundation

Inaugurated in 1978, the Foundation was established by Léonard Gianadda as a place to combine several disciplines, including an archaeological museum, temporary exhibitions and concerts. It was created in memory of Pierre Gianadda, Léonard’s brother, who died in a plane crash. The Foundation is located where Roman remains were discovered while plans were being made to site the building.
