A forest where nature and art blend together
In Valsugana, there is a centuries-old forest where art and nature become one, where rocks, tree trunks and leaves come to life, and where the impossible becomes reality.
Arte Sella is much more than an outdoor museum. It is a creative process, a showcase of the constantly changing interaction between humans and the environment, just like nature itself. Rocks, branches, leaves, tree trunks, soil: these are the raw materials for the works of art which are literally rooted in place, becoming one with nature.
Since 1986, over 300 international artists have contributed to the cultivation of this “place for the soul”, adorning it with creations that are now part of the landscape, transforming with the passing seasons. The ArteNatura path is a journey of discovery amid the works of art and monumental trees of Arte Sella, further enhanced by Malga Costa, a cultural and exhibition space.
The Sky Museum project brings the art of Arte Sella to the centre of Borgo Valsugana. 3 installations mark the beginning of a multi-year process of enhancing architectural and landscape elements:The Broken Oak created by the English artist Stuart Ian Frost, with oak logs uprooted by storm Vaia, Controfacciata (Counterfacade), by Edoardo Tresoldi and L’Uomo volante (The Flying Man) by Cédric Le Borgne, who creates a visual continuity with Edoardo Tresoldi’s work.
