In 1894, Giovanni Segantini left Savognin and decided to settle in Maloja. The painter, who used Divisionist techniques, was inspired by the vast lake landscape, its mountains and the special light of the peaceful mountain village.
One hundred years after his arrival in Maloja, the 'Segantini Trail' was created. Maloja owes the idea and execution to Basel photographers Dominik Labhard and Hans Galli. The approx. two-hour walk takes in 12 stages along Segantini's footsteps. Information panels provide information about the artist's life and work.
The trail starts at Segantini's studio and leads to the Belvedere Tower, the potholes, down to Lake Sils and back to the village. The walk ends at the cemetery where the family found their final resting place.
Starting point: Atelier Segantini
The flyer with the individual stages of the trail is available in all the information offices in Bregaglia
