In the same way that Renaissance artists were commissioned to paint altarpieces, contemporary artists are invited to Ama to work with the pre-existing environment. In this respect, they resemble the individual traits of wines, which – despite their diversities – bear the hallmark of a unique vision and sensibility.
The artists, who come from all over the world, form a community, free from ideology, and the ensuing art is firmly rooted in the local surroundings.
Art extends silently along the lanes, into the chapels and cellars. Open to the public all year round, Ama has become an outdoor treasure trove of artworks in constant conversation with their surroundings.
