(La Maddalena, 25 Oct 13) The La Maddalena Archipelago National Park announces - within the Art and Nature
Festival - the first edition of the contest "I sentieri dell'arte" (The
Art's Pathways). This initiative addresses artists from all over the world,
with no age, gender or any other kind of limits, and it aims at enhancing some
naturally significant places of the National Park through the permanent exhibition
of artworks and the creation of a small museum itinerary that develops along
the Caprera's paths and within the Park's Environmental Education Center in
Stagnali. The contest is part of the initiatives connected to the Art and Nature
Festival, an event aimed at the enhancement of the union between the contemplation
of the "beauty" originating from nature and the artistic inspiration
deriving from it. The goal is to "tell" nature, its elements and
the relationships that, in different ways, connects it to the mankind, to history
In virtue of such goal, the contest provides the realization of three artistic projects to be exhibitd along the following paths within the La Maddalena Archipelago National Park.
The chosen sites are the following ones:
