Arte Sella is an international outdoor exhibition of contemporary art set up in 1986 in the fields and woods of the Val di Sella, by the municipality of Borgo Valsugana in the 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.
Within the framework of the European Landart Network Arte Sella starts the programme "Creativity and Landscape" in September 2014.
