//The mission//

From destruction, beauty is restored.

We believe in sustainable business that can be replicated in other places, which takes at heart the value of territories, local communities and people, in harmony with nature.
VAIA is our way of showing that this is possible, by combining environmental, economic and social sustainability.

A precious material...

The wood retrieved from the trees felled by the storm is uneven and broken in irregular ways, which does not allow us to build large objects.

In VAIA we transform this apparent limitation into a distinctive element of our style: our creations are the result of craftsmanship and are all unique, each one different from the other.
We have created wooden objects that not only amplify the senses, but also our way of feeling and seeing.

... Looking to the future

We do not have the power to either predict or prevent new catastrophes of VAIA’s magnitude. But we do have the strength to rebuild where destruction has hit.

Ours is a project that encapsulates all the energy of a rebirth: we give new value to raw materials, collaborate with local communities and create a positive impact on the environment and the land.

This is the VAIA model.

WE WORK TOWARDS CONCRETE GOALS

//Find out what we have achieved//

Every year we plan tree planting events in the Dolomites.
At the moment we have planted 60,000 trees: join us to reach the 100,000 mark!

  • 60% 60%

Million cubic meters of fallen wood

SPEED REACHED BY WIND GUSTS

Billion Euros of estimated damages

Hectares of affected forests (wildlife and vegetation)

Impacted municipalities, some of them at hydrogeological risk

RAINFALL LEVEL OVER JUST 3 DAYS

//The storm in figures//

We call it a storm, but VAIA had the force and scope of a hurricane.
Everything begins back then, on the night of 28 October 2018, when a violent storm of massive proportions sweeps away entire valleys in the Dolomites.

North-Eastern Italy is forced to experiment first-hand the dire consequences of climate change.
The fall of trees in a staggering number – the estimate is of 42 millions – has caused a remarkable increase in the risks linked to hydrogeological instability across numerous areas.
