Have you ever visited a museum on your skis? In Val di Fiemme, on the Trentino Dolomites, you can. In the Latemar Ski Center, the Agnello slope in Pampeago and its variant run through the RespirArt Art Park, one of the highest in the world. From 2,200 to 2,000 metres of altitude, between the Monte Agnello mountain lodge and Chalet Caserina, there are 26 art works. Some of them can be seen also from the Agnello chairlift. RespirArt is an open-air museum, inspired by the Latemar peaks in the Dolomites – a place of unparalleled beauty and a Umans’ World Heritage Site.
At the edge of the slope, you’ll see surprising creations: a mythological horse, an encircled star, a frame, a teared up eye, a peace guardian, a granite snap-hook, a group of suspended chairs, large water droplets, a theatre that follows the Dolomites profiles, two energy-channelling cones and a large head framing the Latemar.
New installations are added every year, meanwhile the older ones are shaped by weather. Currently, the Val di Fiemme Art Park comprises 36 installations, of which 10 can be admired only in the summer.
Among the internationally renowned artists who created a work of art in the sight of the Latemar, there is also the great master Hidetoshi Nagasawa.
