vitART Parcours 1

Aranno: from stop Maestà to Palazzo

The Vitart_Parcours 1 Itinerary was created in Aranno as a pilot project and runs in the vicinity of the company headquarters - Nellimya Arthouse - to facilitate artist residencies, creative workshops and the organization of ALA promotional events.
 
The fine-tuning of this path, which has been in disuse and ecological abuse for years, now allows an easy walk of about 1.5 km.
 
The route extends between the Aranno composting area and the Maestà PostBus Stop, to the exit in the Palazzo locality; basically, just before the washhouse and the access to the historic core of Aranno, from which it is possible to connect to the famous Wonder Trail.
 
vitART Parcours 1 is presented with Landart works, periodically restored and renovated due to bad weather, falling trees or wildlife passage... and related GreenPoints: picnic tables, children's book and play house, cacoon (hanging tent), hammocks, yoga and stretching platform. There are also two playhouses: one for free exchange of children's books and another with board games.
 
The catalog dedicated to the vitART Parcours 1 itinerary is constantly being updated.
 
The GreenPoints of vitART Parcours 1_Aranno are also suitable for birthday parties and recreational seminars. The ALA social office makes itself available by appointment to offer pragmatic support, lighting and toilet use.

Landart's works

GreenPoints

We have a dream!
Our dream is to create a network of art trails suitable for connecting Upper, Middle and Lower Malcantone. 
In our inspiring vision is the ambition to transform an entire region, Malcantone, into a large open-air Landart exhibition!
In these first two years of operation, we have had economic and logistical difficulties and weather mishaps, but that is not why we are throwing in the towel!
 
The unique initiative continues confidently through volunteerism and encouragement funding, which is really helpful in maintaining or restoring Landart works and GreenPoints, as well as designing new vitART Parcours Routes. How?
 
1. Select a trail capable of uniting Upper, Middle and Lower Malcantone, possibly not very well known
 
2. Clean up the surrounding woodland area by volunteering
 
3. Invite international Artists to make Landart works to make the route attractive
 
4. Create GreenPoints to enable a restorative break in Nature.
