Val di Sella


The Val di Sella seduces anyone who approaches it, whether the visitor belongs to the increasingly large group of hikers, or to that category of people who retain intense emotions, messages and stimuli from nature and art. Every guest of the “blissful valley”, in fact, is attracted by that imperceptible, sublime mixture of apparently hidden elements that only a few places can offer: harmony of spaces, of shapes, of lights and colors.

We decided to protect the existing forest in Val di Sella within the exhibition areas of Artesella, a magical place, unique in its kind: an art gallery, a space where trees are the protagonists of installations and works of art that are linked to the territory, to the community that lives there and to all mountain, art and nature lovers who are lucky enough to visit that fantastic open-air natural museum.

Countering the climate crisis means protecting and becoming responsible for the forests we love by taking care of them. The Vaia storm that hit these areas in 2018 left many trees on the ground that were attacked by the bark beetle and now threatens even the trees still left standing: the bark beetle is an insect that attacks spruce by digging tunnels under the coreworm that cause the plant to dry out and die quickly.

In this area we have already planted various native species contributing to the rebirth of mixed forests with a great recreational, tourist and cultural value. Now, the bark beetle emergency requires us to react immediately to safeguard the woods and the exhibition areas of Artesella that are visited by more than 100,000 people every year. Thanks to your support you will be able to contribute to the maintenance of the existing woods, to the improvement of the woods in the areas of Artesella and help us to fight and contain the damage of the bark beetle.


This is a FSC®certified area: FSC forest management certification confirms that the forest is being managed in a way that preserves biological diversity and benefits the lives of local people and workers, while ensuring it sustains economic viability.
