The Stazione dell’Arte Foundation is dedicated to Maria Lai (Ulassai, 1919 – Cardedu, 2013), she was an important artist during the second world war times. Maria was a pioneer in “relational art”, thanks to the famous work “Legarsi alla montagna“ performed in Ulassai in September 1981.
Opened in 2006, the Museum is the result of her donation of 140 among her remarkable works. It is located in the former railway station of the village. This choice was precise: her goal was to draw people near art.
As a connecting people area, the railway station is the ideal frame to host the works that such a remarkable artist donated to her birthplace.
