Following the footsteps of the Giacometti family

This package allows you to learn about the lives and works of the great artists of Bregaglia Valley.

On foot, you will visit the places where the artists Giovanni, Augusto and Alberto Giacometti lived and worked. You will get to see the environment that inspired their imagination throughout their lives. During the tour you will be informed of the important national and international events that are linked to the works of these three influential artists, who came from the same family and worked in Stampa from 1888 to 1965. The walk, beginning in Borgonovo and ending in Stampa, includes significant places such as the artists' family homes, their studios and school buildings. You will also see places containing the artists' works, such as churches, and the cemetery where the families rest in peace.
