After last year’s success, the third edition of the Festival ‘Le vie della bellezza’ (The ways of beauty) is on its way, an appointment ‘between art and nature’ that is the result of the collaboration between the Pro loco and the Municipality of Cavaso del Tomba, the administration of Possagno, the Associazione Arte e Natura, The Music Country House, the Coro Valcavasia, the Comitato San Martino and the Associazione Salvatica.
This year the festival’s main theme is ‘The Beauty of Nature and Landscape’, confirming the festival’s flagship objective, which is the desire to combine the promotion of the area’s tourist and cultural offerings with entertainment events, the valorisation of local resources and all-round excellence, and the creation of an ever-widening collaborative network of public institutions, private entities, associations, artists and creative people.

A space for reflection and, at the same time, a widespread festival, included in the annual programme of the MAB Culture Technical Table.
The initiative enjoys the patronage of the municipalities of Monfumo, Possagno and Pieve del Grappa, the Pro loco of Cavaso del Tomba, the province of Treviso and the Veneto Region, together with the trade associations Confcommercio Treviso (Asolo delegation), Coldiretti Asolo, Confartigianato Asolo, CNA Asolo, Strada del vino Asolo-Montello, as well as the Tempio Canovianoviano Foundation, Welcome BLUE (a project for welcoming people with autism), IPA Terre di
Asolo and Monte Grappa, Riserva della Biosfera Asolo Monte Grappa and Fondazione Marca Treviso.

All joined by a series of sponsors and collaborations with private individuals.
The history of the festival began in 2022, from an idea of the municipality and the Pro loco of Cavaso del Tomba, with the aim of creating an authentic ‘open-air museum’ in the Asolo hills, an itinerant journey through the small local villages of Costalunga, Bocca di Serra and Castelcies.

A cognitive itinerary capable of leading the public and the spectator (whether resident or tourist) to the rediscovery of unprecedented aspects of art, culture, music, landscape and food and wine.
In recent years, the event has seen a growth within its offer: if last year there was a territorial expansion of the appointments up to the municipality of Possagno, the well-known home of Canova, this year the ‘range of action’ is further extended, involving also the territories of Monfumo and Pieve del Grappa in this offer of events.
There are two objectives at the heart of the festival: on the one hand to enhance the historical-cultural and landscape-gastronomic heritage of Valcavasia, and on the other to contribute to projects in the area itself. In this regard, last year 2 thousand euro were donated for the renovation (currently underway) of the charming little church of San Martino in Castelcies.

A path of valorisation that this year intends to continue with the collection of funds to arrange the signs scattered among the places and works of art that make up the municipal territory of Cavaso del Tomba, for better use by tourists and residents.

A festival that stimulates people’s sense of belonging to the local territory, for a rediscovery of the priceless jewels that characterise it. Various points will be touched upon by this itinerant festival: in Cavaso del Tomba it will be possible to visit the municipal auditorium, the church of San Martino in Castelcies, The Music Country House, and the Molino della Serra; in Possagno, a stop at the Tempio Canoviano is not to be missed, while in Monfumo open doors will be opened at the Amadio Estate; in Pieve del Grappa, the Astego vegetation garden of Veneto Agricoltura will be visited.

‘This year there are several novelties,’ comments Renato Zanini, president of Arte e Natura. ‘In addition to the meeting with two art historians, scheduled for Saturday 18 May, on Sunday we will have the first edition of “Leggendo par i Colmei”, where the public will have the opportunity to meet a series of writers. The initiative is part of an itinerary dedicated to the five senses: among these, also taste, with tastings of specially selected typical products, such as aromatic herbs, Morlacco cheese, ‘ancient apples’, wine and oil from Maser, and homemade ice cream’.

‘We want to make the territory known,’ is the premise made by Fernando Sartor of The Music Country House. ‘We think that culture belongs to everyone and we want to share this festival with the Pedemontana, to make the territory known in a different way, with first-class artists. I thank the sponsors who, with their sensitivity, are an active part of the festival’.

‘For several years we have been talking about doing this initiative,’ explained Floriano Sartor, president of the San Martino Committee. ‘It is a beautiful event to give prestige to our territory: a route between faith and nature, leading to places that are important from a landscape point of view, where there are many stories to tell.
