The study center inaugurated in Émarèse in October 2012 is dedicated to one of the most eminent figures of the twentieth century in the Aosta Valley, Abbot Joseph-Marie Trèves.

Abbot Trèves, who received priestly orders in 1900, is remembered for his anti-fascist commitment, for his strong campaigns in favor of women’s participation in social life and for his fight against alcoholism and illiteracy. In 1926, together with Émile Chanoux, he founded the “Jeune Vallée d’Aoste” group, bringing together young people educated under the banner of the values ​​of democracy, freedom and autonomy.

Trèves’ thought is reconstructed through a few writings signed by him but also thanks to his rich correspondence.
