Art Residency at Arte Sella, Trentino Italy

Apply for the Arte Laguna Prize with 2 works,you are eligible for an art residency in Trentino Italy

Description of residency program
Arte Sella: the contemporary mountain. A unique creative process which over a thirty-year journey has seen a meeting of artistic languages, artistic feeling and different inspirations united by the desire to establish a fruitful and ongoing dialogue between creativity and the natural world.

Two routes immersed in the woods where international artists’ sensitivity and creations have been able to talk to nature and to get in touch with it. Year by year, a succession of artworks made of natural materials are donated to nature which modifies them, turning them into something new. Every season covers Arte Sella itineraries with colours, shades and new scents: the route is a continuous discovery, every time a different emotion.

Arte Sella consists of two routes: ArteNatura, a path that extends along a forest road immersed in the woods. It is a route of approximately two kilometers and it offers the opportunity to discover some artworks. A second route is situated at the Malga Costa Area and it consists of a ring path of about one kilometer, which has other artworks such as the famous Tree Cathedral. From 2016 it is possible to visit also the historic Villa Strobele and its garden, where Arte Sella was born.
