Experience Sgraffito as a contemporary communication medium.


Traditionally executed sgraffiti, which also function as scanable QR codes via the smartphone as digital portals. With the specially programmed application "Fatschadas" the first augmented reality sgraffito of the Engadine can be experienced. 

The old tradition of sgraffito is based on a scraptechnique in which ornaments are scratched in the still damp house facade plaster in freehand work or by means of stencils. Through attached ornaments, such as mythical animal figures and texts with personal mottos, family culture, social positions, achievements and moral positions became visible on the house facades, demonstratively exeheading what the owners wanted to stand for. The sgraffiti thus created the public streetscape of the Engadine in a lasting way.

The SOMALGORS74 project uses digital media to expand this creative and communicative tradition of sgraffito. Every six months, artists, graphic artists and poets develop new, virtual designs that deal with the Engadine tradition of Sgraffito as an ornamental communication medium in public space. With this project, the cultural initiative SOMALGORS74 hopes to spark the debate on the tradition and future of Sgraffito.
