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.

Description

Segantini grew up in northern Italy. In 1886, he arrived in Savognin in search of new landscapes for his paintings. Inspired by the mountain scenery, Segantini painted numerous paintings in the following years. Among others, 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 erected a "Plaz Segantini" with a three-dimensional installation. The facility is located on the Veia Purmaglera, where Segantini painted the image "l'arada" (while ploughing).
