Arte Sella: the contemporay mountain. Un processo creativo unico, che nell’arco di un cammino più che ventennale ha visto incontrarsi linguaggi artistici, sensibilità e ispirazioni diversi accomunati dal desiderio di intessere un fecondo e continuo dialogo tra la creatività ed il mondo naturale. Nel tempo, più di 300 artisti si sono avvicendati in questo percorso, consegnando alla Val di Sella ed alle cure dell’Associazione Arte Sella il loro lavoro; Arte Sella è così diventata sempre più una possibilità, un luogo, un’occasione di sperimentazione e di crescita creativa in continuo dialogo ed ascolto con i mondi della musica, dello spettacolo, della fotografia e della cultura nelle sue molteplici sfaccettature.

Arte Sella is an international outdoor exhibition of contemporary art set up in 1986 in the fields and woods of the Sella Valley (Val di Sella, municipality of Borgo Valsugana, province of Trento).

Arte Sella is both a qualified exhibition of artistic works and, most importantly, an ongoing creative process in which art works can be actually followed as they grow and evolve. The artists are called upon to express a respectful relationship with nature and treat it as a source of inspiration.

The works are usually three-dimensional and created using stones, leaves, branches and tree trunks. Man-made objects, materials and colours are rarely used. All works are placed outdoor and can be admired while enjoying the different types of woods, stones and monumental trees in the surroundings, the artworks are left to decay thus becoming again part of nature's life cycle.

  • It is a lovely walk, in the middle of nature in the beautiful Woods of the saddle. Ideal for young and old, as well as admiring these works mostly with wood, and even a relaxing stroll. To visit at least once.

  • Beautiful place, with many original artworks in the open nature. Well worth a visit.
  • The idea to do art out of natural materials is great. The way of displaying it and integrating in the environment is absolute awesome. It works of art are integrated in wood landscape as it would be a part of the natural habitat. Do not skip a free exhibitionist and spend 2-2,5 hours walking through relaxing trail and looking around for art object "hidden" in your surroundings. Some of them are really obvious to see, others are so naturally placed, that you need good eye to realize an art object and not a natural derivation. The second part of the exhibition is more museum like, where more objects are displayed on the less territory. Never the less it is also worth seeing and walking through and let the art impress you. As the statement I would say if your are into modern art and like walking in the nature - Arte Sella will for sure impress you. But even if not - it is worth visiting.
  • Amazing open air art museum on the mountain, do not miss
  • Bellissima escursione nel bosco con tante installazioni
  • AMAZING... a must see.
