The patrician Planta house in Ardez dates from 1642 and is the domicile of the fundaziun Not Vital since 2006.
The main goal of the foundation is to house and conserve an important library of Rumantsch writings. Those books have all been printed in the Engadin between the XVI and the XIX century. The library can be consulted upon request.
Furthermore, each year, during the month of August, the foundation in Ardez opens its doors to the public to present exhibitions and publications dedicated to local and international artists.
The Parkin, a sculpture park in the village of Sent, as well as the castle of Tarasp are part of the fundaziun Not Vital as well.
