The tour is named after the painter Giovanni Segantini, who spent several years living and working in Savognin. Some of his most famous work was done here. The bike route passes through this very area.

Start of the tour «Giovanni's Paradise» is the parking area for the cable car in Savognin. Already in Savognin the route passes the Sala Segantini art gallery and his former home. Next starts the climb to Rudnal above Savognin. The track goes along a forest road reaching the highest point at Nassegl at the foot of Piz Mitgel. The place offers a view over the entire ski resort of Savognin. From Plang la Curvavera the pace quickens on the downhill over single trails and forest roads. But don't forget the view over the Surses, which so inspired Giovanni Segantini's paintings.

Der Aufstieg ist angenehm, anfänglich Asphalt, später Forststrasse. Die Abfahrt leider nichts besonderes. Ich kann diese Tour darum nicht empfehlen.
