As a visionary figure in the community, our benefactor Sveva Caetani had a deep belief that culture, education, knowledge and artistic endeavours benefit all of society.
Thanks to YOUR support, the Caetani Cultural Centre Society, a not-for-profit and charitable organization, continues to achieve its mission to protect the Caetani family story, collections and home while keeping heritage, arts and culture as our focal point.
We have also made significant strides in keeping Sveva’s legacy alive.
With the opening of our museum and the repatriation of Sveva’s Recapitulation painting series of 47 watercolour works, which tell her life’s journey through imaginative and fascinating detail, we have welcomed visitors from near and far to see and hear Sveva’s remarkable story.
We have also continued with our artist and writer-in-residence program, welcoming artists from around Canada to live and create in Sveva’s former home, and engage with the local community.
Our beautiful 1.3-acre property also continues to be used for fundraisers and fun community events.
How Does Your Continued Support Help?
There is still much work to be done to restore the Caetani house to its former glory and maintain the integrity of our collections, house and grounds.
Our Bringing Sveva Home fundraiser helps us raise seed funding towards capital projects so that we can better tell the Caetani story, protect our collections, and maintain Sveva’s heralded Recapitulation series for years to come.
