The Nuto Revelli Foundation (Fondazione Nuto Revelli Onlus) is an Italian cultural organization founded in Cuneo in 2006 to enhance the research conducted by Nuto Revelli, who was a writer, a partisan and a researcher of farmer memories.
The Foundation preserves one of the most important oral history archives in Italy, with thousands of hours of audio recordings, letters and photographs about the Second World War, the Italian Resistance, the experience of Alpine troupes in Russia, and rural and farming culture.
The Foundation promotes historical awareness, democracy, civil commitment and sustainability as its main values. The principle at the core of its work is impact culture, i.e. the design and implementation of cultural activities that engage the people living in the territories they focus on. This approach is best embodied in the project to bring life back to the Alpine hamlet of Paraloup (near Rittana, Cuneo), which the Nuto Revelli Foundation has renovated in the past 10 years, and which today is home to various cultural projects as well as the “Anello Forte” workshop, dedicated to women’s memories.
Wecho is a project by the Nuto Revelli Foundation, carried out in collaboration with Coordinamento Donne di Montagna and YWCA-UCDG Italia, funded by the European Cultural Foundation with support from Propositi di filosofia and Nuvolar srl.
