Kunstgalerie Sala Segantini
In addition to memories of the great painter Giovanni Segantini during his time in Savognin, the Sala Segantini also exhibits contemporary art from Graubünden. A meeting place for national and international artists and art lovers.


Segantini grew up in northern Italy. In search of new landscapes for his paintings, he came to Savognin in 1886. Inspired by the mountain scenery, Segantini painted numerous pictures in the following years. Among other things, the second version of "Ave Maria" or the "knitting girl". On the occasion of the centenary of the artist's death, the association "Pro Segantini" together with the former municipality of Savognin built a "Plaz Segantini" with a three-dimensional installation. The plant is located on the Veia Purmaglera, in the place where Segantini painted the picture "l'arada" (ploughing).
