PONT Group has launched the Castle in Transylvania strategic program in March 2015. The program has set the goal of creating a network of experts within relevant fields, who can exchange and share information to help increase the sustainability of Romania's cultural heritage. The project aims to develop strategic thinking by examining the economic and social value of the Transylvanian castles and manors. Our organization will develop a local and regional plan to attract alternative resources necessary for the restoration of these buildings.

The Castle in Transylvania Fund was established by PONT Group within the Castle in Transylvania program in 2016 . Through various campaigns, the Fund aims at providing funds to support the future activities of the program. The first campaign of the Castle in Transylvania Fund started in the spring of 2017 through the launch of the Castle in Transylvania Shop, where unique artworks and gift items of Transylvanian designers are available for purchase.

When creating the special collections for this webshop, the participating artists and desigers were asked to make associations with the concept of the 'castle' – including nostalgia, elegance, leisure, proximity to nature, historical eras, architectural styles, castle gardens, fairy tales, etc. –  and use these associations as sources of inspiration for their new creations. In addition, we insisted that these products would be designed by Transylvanian artists, and if possible, made of local, natural materials as our goal is to promote local artists as well as local, sustainable solutions.
