"Hephaestus in the garden of God Pan"

The theme of the fifth edition of the Predaia Arte e Natura project is inspired by the encounter of elements of different nature. Often the mixture of different worlds (not just materials) can give life to unexpected works.

PAN, was the divinity linked to the forests and nature. HEPHESTUS was instead the divinity of fire, forges, engineering, sculpture and metallurgy.

With this theme, through the symbolic reference to Greek mythology, we want to enhance proposals that highlight the coexistence, through the material use or even just conceptual, of the natural world and that linked to metallurgy and fire.

So space for the imagination!


the project


In order to promote knowledge of the territory and local traditions, the creation of an awareness of environmental realities and possibilities, as well as the development of creativity, innovation and sustainable development, the Department of Culture of the Municipality of Predaia promotes the cultural project “Predaia Arte e Natura”.

The ambitious project will embrace all artistic forms, for achieving the aforementioned purposes, while respecting the precious natural resource and, at the same time, guaranteeing conditions of equal opportunity for access and participation in activities, without social, cultural and physical discrimination.

The current efforts for the environment made by the international community demonstrate that the limits of the planet are a reality. The concept of sustainable development, extended not only to the environmental dimension but also to the social one, has founded its foundations on respect for the future, both for the planet and for the next generations.

The Project aims to pursue the objectives set by the United Nations as part of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development, a global action plan for people, the planet and prosperity.

The cultural and artistic project is divided into multiple sub-projects, all linked by a single theme, different but complementary for each edition:


    Competition for the re-enactment of the tradition of wood, it is organized by the “Amministrazione Usi Civici” of Coredo, a fundamental player in the management of the territory, in agreement with the Municipality, it is proposed and carried out during the first week of August of each year;

As usual, the artistic-cultural project will end with the exhibition set up on the occasion of the Christmas holidays.
  • Informative cultural evenings:
