The Casa Nova, the emblematic fortified farmhouse reopened today its doors after the restoration and refurbishment works to become the Campus of Business Excellence Casa Nova.
The Town Council of Calp acquired the property in 1996 and restored it respecting the original structure of the farmhouse and adding a new body that is differentiated from the old building. The new building will have a large assembly hall, three classrooms, cafe, library, offices and one exhibition hall.
The objective is to turn the Casanova into a training centre aimed at entrepreneurs, innovators, unemployed, etc., to enhance professional qualification and innovation and promote employment. To this end, an extensive program has been designed with an investment of 60,000€ including courses, conferences and training campaigns.
The reopening of the Casanova included several activities such as a photographic exhibition, a concert and an exhibition of antique furniture. People could know how was the life in this farmhouse talking with Ángel Pineda, a member of the last family that lived in this building.
At the opening ceremony, the mayor César Sánchez said that "in recent years unemployment has been reduced by 25%. The main objective of the government team is to create employment and quality employment. This campus was born with the aim of promoting the training for both those who already work and those who are looking for a job".
