[ARte]: Artworks in the nature

Last August I went near Borgo  Valsugana (Trento),  for a whole day to discover a magic place. At the end of Valle Sella, a mountain valley, is in fact possible to walk in the nature and at the same time enjoy artworks from international artists spread along the path in the wood.

Info: http://www.artesella.it/en/aboutus.html

From 1996 Arte Sella developed along a forest path on the Southern side of Mount Armentera, the Artenatura path winds its way through the forest and the entrance is free.

In 1998 another path was added The Malga Costa which in the past was a farm, the barn which was the stable for the farm animals is today the Concert Hall. The farmhouse is a meeting place and a place for the artists to share their views. 2001 was an important year for Arte Sella, the Tree Cathedral of Giuliano Mauri was created, it has been a symbol of Arte Sella ever since. This imposing architecture is almost complete thanks to the patient intervention of Nature. Since then Arte Sella has become established, promoting collaborations between the “ Maestri “ of Art in Nature to name but a few, Nils Udo, Chris Drury, Patrick Dougherty, Michelangelo Pistoletto.

[Art through the Ages]: A beautiful statue

Dainese_02042017_0070_Raw-Modifica

The Villa Pisani Garden covers a whole bend of the Brenta river, an area of 11 hectares and a perimeter of about 1500 metres. It was planned by the Paduan architect Girolamo Frigimelica de’ Roberti and laid out when the villa was not yet built. The architect is the author of the famous maze and of some original lodges as the exedra, with two wisteria-covered passageways at the sides, the turret at the centre of the maze and the stables in the background of the large inner parterre.

In the eighteenth century the breathtaking sight was embellished with embroideries with huge statues at the sides. The garden is arranged with long perspectives following the French model used by André Le Nôtre at Versailles and the traditional fenced garden of Veneto, open through portals and windows which extend the sight on the Brenta river.

[Portraits]: Undici alberi

Undici ritratti di alberi scattati in montagna tutti in un giorno.

Un giorno particolare nel quale camminando ho incontrato uno alla volta questi alberi, sparsi in mezzo a tutti gli altri nel bosco. Sono emersi da soli, senza cercarli.

E’ in fondo il senso della fotografia: apertura di animo e saper ascoltare e captare quello che succede. Le fotografie sono venute naturalmente sena forzature.
