The art park "RespirArt" is a green gallery constantly developing. Artists from all over the world come to the park and create Land Art works inspired by the surrounding Dolomite landscape. New installations are added every summer, while the older ones change according to weather conditions, or are destroyed by the weight of the snow. This is how the works, created with natural elements, return to nature.

There are 2 ways of discovering the park: only downhill, thanks to the ascent with the Agnello chairlift (from Pampeago), or on foot from the parking lot of the Tresca chairlift. The climb is not particularly demanding, however it has some steeper sections before the Chalet Caserina. The rhododendrons and blueberry plants along the way delight the eyes and palate!

Author’s recommendation

Visit the art park also in winter on skis! The Agnello slope runs right next to the most representative works!

Ogni opera d'arte apre le porte a un mondo nuovo che ogni bambino riesce a inventarsi in poco più tempo di uno sguardo. È questo che voglio condividere di una passeggiata fatta in discesa partendo dal rifugio Agnello a monte dell'omonima seggiovia. Una passeggiata adatta alle famiglie che non necessita di allenamento ma di ginocchia buone si( la discesa è ripida ma se ci si ferma a guardare ogni opera d'arte si dà tempo alle ginocchia per riprendersi).Oltre la metà del percorso ma dopo l'ultima opera d'arte si incontra Baita Caserina bar-ristorante. Il sentiero prosegue sulla pista invernale di sci e poi su strada asfaltata che riporta a valle della seggiovia Agnello dove avevamo lasciato la macchina. Consiglio scarponi da montagna, bastoni che aiutano a non scivolare in discesa, cappellino e occhiali da sole perché ci sono pochissime zone d'ombra.
