The Christine and Göran Schildt Foundation
The Christine and Göran Schildt Foundation’s main aims are to strengthen the cultural contact between Greece and Finland and to preserve Alvar Aalto’s artistic legacy, both of which were central to Göran Schildt in his lifetime.
In Villa Skeppet you find these two aspirations sophisticatedly combined. Göran Schildt’s wish was that his home would become an Alvar Aalto and Mediterranean museum after his death.
The Foundation arranges guided tours in Villa Skeppet as well as lectures, workshops and cultural programs that foster the foundation’s aims.
We co-operate with the Friends of Villa Kolkis that promotes cultural cooperation between the Nordic countries and the Mediterranean in the spirit of Göran Schildt. Read more about their activities here: https://www.villakolkis.org/en
