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.

  • Wonderful location for everybody interested in arts in nature. Not splitting from, but connecting mankind to the universe.  more »
  • Wonderful, relatively easy walk through the forest (although you'll still need good shoes). Moreover, it's a different experience for every season of the year, so it's worth re-visiting. The artworks are perfectly integrated in the landscape, sometimes with subtle effect, sometime stunning. Paths are easy enough to follow.
  • It is forbidden to take pictures of the man-made pieces of artwork, but the natural art works are an attraction just as much.
