In order to enhance the bovine race and the local stone, that ever since past times have represented important resources for our territory, Gal Azione Ossola in collaboration with APA Novara and VCO (Provincial association of breeders), and Assograniti VCO, are promoting an international competition of sculpture: STONE AND ITS PASTORAL MUSE, using local stone the Serizzo Antigorio in the Verbano Cusio Ossola territory.

The initiative wants to emphasize the deep and long lasting bond, between the local stone and the Bruna Alpine breed of cow. A relationship which has characterized family life in a rustic landscape.

Artistic expression will be the essence from which these two elements will be united. The artist wil be the creator of a sculpture of this Pastoral Muse, which will be placed in one of the central squares in Domodossola.
