The Municipality of Finale Emilia has conferred honorary citizenship on the Lene Thun Foundation, in virtue of the strong and profound bond created after the terrible earthquake that shook the lives of citizens, especially the youngest, 10 years ago.
The pupils at that time, together with our ceramists, created 340 tiles that today, through the 'Adopt a Tile' project, become a collective work.
"I remember as if it were yesterday the first day I visited Finale Emilia. The strength that the people of this land have shown is immense. Knowing that our Foundation was able to make a contribution to the restart is a joy for me," commented Peter Thun, our President and founder of our non-profit organisation, at the commemoration ceremony.
