Franz Avancini & Smarmellata – 2020
The Alpine Newt is the result of the second open land art workshop for the costruction of a collective installation. It is conducted by the artist Franz Avancini and promoted by Smarmellata with support of Piano B.
The sculpture seeks dialogue with the adjacent Sat river: the Newt has just come out of the water and is turning its sight to the west, where the sun goes down behind Ledro’s mountains. It wants to bring attention to the preservation of the native biological species of our territory and the importance of the respect of Nature.
