Arte Sella Park & Villa Strobele – Borgo Valsugana
Open-air Museum of Contemporary Art. Open all year long
In Sella Valley, in Borgo Valsugana (province of Trento), there is a museum of contemporary art at about 1000 meters above sea level.
Arte Sella – The contemporary mountain is divided into two areas about 4 km away from each other, and the path that connects them is also part of the viit. It includes:
– the Garden of Villa Strobele
– the Montura Path
– the Malga Costa area.
The purpose of the museum is to combine contemporary art and nature, and right from the start certain cardinal principles were formed that still inspire its activity.
The main principles of Artesella are:
– the artist is not the absolute protagonist of the artworks but accepts that it is nature that completes his work;
– nature must be defended as a vault of nature;
– nature is not only protected but also interpreted and this changes the relationship with it;
– the artworks are placed here and there and are made of natural materials. They come out from the landscape and then return to nature.
The three exhibition areas host about 80 artworks and installations including great artists such as Ettore Sottsass, Michele de Lucchi, Stefano Boeri, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Tobia Scarpa, just to mention some of the best known Italians, as well as dozens of international artists.
Arte Sella is a museum managed by Arte Sella cultural association.
The museum also hosts cultural events such as photo exhibitions, talks, debates, and open-air concerts.
