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). From 1996 the project Arte Sella developed on a dirt lane on southern slope of Armentera mountain: the ArteNatura route is an art route on a mountain path where visitors can discover art installations and be content about peculiarity of surroundings (different types of wood, rocks and trees).
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, artificial 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.
For a couple of years activities of Arte Sella were organised also in Malga Costa, always in Sella-Valley, where visitors can get to know Arte Sella and attend to concerts, theatre performances, creative workshops and photo exhibitions among others.
