The Valley of Art
Birthplace of the Giacomettis
This valley with its enchanted forests, rugged mountains and quiet villages has inspired painters, sculptors, craftsmen, writers and poets for centuries.
The Giacometti family, whose most famous representative is Alberto Giacometti, comes from Bregaglia. For other artists, such as Segantini, who came to Bregaglia for the beautiful landscapes and special light, or Varlin, who fell in love with someone from Bregaglia, the valley became their chosen home.
Even today, painters, sculptors and skilled craftsmen live in Bregaglia and cultivate the region with their works of art.
