As the main representative of Italian Pointillism, Segantini preferred rustic themes of the untouched majestic mountain world of Maloja, Soglio, where he wintered, and Engadin. These themes are reflected in his works.

The famous pointillist painter, lover of alpine landscapes, found inspiration in the enchanting scenery and special light of this quiet mountain village. A hundred years after his arrival in Maloja, the Segantini Trail was created. It was designed by Basel photographers Labahrd and Galli. The trail takes you on a wonderful 2-hour hike, which includes 12 stages. At each stage, there is an interpretive panel illustrating Segantini's life and works.Starting at the atelier, you visit the special places that inspired Segantini, places where he painted several well-known paintings of majestic rocky landscapes. The tour ends with a visit to the small cemetery, where the visitor can pay respects at the family tomb.
