Special exhibition

The pastor from Engadine

The theologian and pastor Giovanni Luzzi, who came from the Lower Engadine but emigrated to Italy with his parents at a young age, devoted himself intensively to a new Italian translation of the Bible in order to give the faithful better access to the Holy Scriptures.

In 1923 the well-travelled man returned to Graubünden, where he worked as a pastor in Poschiavo on a new translation of the Bible in Valader.

As a committed advocate of true ecumenism, Giovanni Luzzi is still very relevant today.

With documents from Poschiavo and the Museum d'Engiadina Bassa Scuol, the special exhibition on the life and work of this exciting personality, designed by the Galleria PGI in Poschiavo, is now also accessible to the Engiadina Bassa public. This in cooperation with the Archiv Cultural EB and the Corporaziun evangelica.


Exhibition opening with aperitif: Sunday, June 25, 2023, 3 p.m. in the Museum d'Engiadina Bassa.


On August 25, 2023, Father Paolo Tognina will give a talk in the Church of San Niclà.


Opening times: June 25 to October 22, 2023, Tuesday to Friday and Sunday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
