The Lene Thun Foundation ONLUS (non-profit organisation) is committed to providing permanent “recreational therapy” services using clay modelling. It works in different situations of disease and social disadvantage, especially in children and the young in hospitals, becoming a real pillar of psychological support throughout a period of sickness.

Recreational therapy is scientifically recognised as an effective support for drug-based medical treatment and is the beating heart of the Lene Thun Foundation ONLUS ceramics workshops.

Our Team

We have many activities and take advantage of a dedicated and professional team to put them into action.

"Find joy for yourself and bring joy to others"

That was the life motto of Countess Lene Thun, who, ever since she was a little girl, won the hearts of those by her side with cute clay-modelled figures.
