THE NEW "LUPA del LAGORAI" (SHE-WOLF of LAGORAI) by MARCO MARTALAR
After the Winged Dragon of Lavarone (Drago di Vaia), in Alpe Cimbra (province of Trento), here is another incredible work by the artist, this time in Valsugana near Levico Terme, precisely in Vetriolo Terme: the Lupa del Lagorai (She-Wolf of Lagorai). It is a majestic she-wolf made with wood scraps from the Vaia storm that destroyed most of the trees in Trentino on the night of 29 October 2018. The work is located at an altitude of 1,600 meters, in the hamlet of Vetriolo, the highest thermal center in Europe. But be careful because the work will not last forever, the wood used, in fact, has not been treated and for this reason it is destined to disappear.

WHEN TO GO TO SEE THE SHE-WOLF of LAGORAI
The best time to see the She-Wolf of Lagorai does not exist! It is a wonderful work in any season. In summer and spring with the warmer temperatures it is ideal to escape from the heat and enjoy some mountain air (remember to bring water in summer!). In autumn the landscape presents truly magical colors and perfect for photographs. In Winter, however, the magic of the snow that whitens the landscape around the Lupa makes everything even more evocative. We also advise you to go there in the afternoon and then wait for the sun to go down to witness a breathtaking sunset!
WHO IS MARCO MARTALAR?
La She-Wolf of Lagorai is not the first work of this kind born from the hands of the artist Marco Martalar. In 2020, in Mezzaselva di Roana on the Altopiano dei Sette Comuni, where he lives, Marco created a winged lion with 1500 pieces of shrubs and trees felled by Vaia, which became the largest winged lion in the world, three meters high and 4 long, 5. Immediately afterwards, the artist achieved incredible success thanks to the Dragon of Vaia, in Lavarone, "a majestic work, a symbol of resilience and courage".
WORLD MAPPERS' TIPS to SEE and VISIT the SHE-WOLF of LAGORAI
Be respectful of the local area by parking in permitted areas and not disturbing the people who live in the surroundings of Vetriolo Terme.
Arrive early in the morning or at sunset to find fewer people (actually, now that it is becoming very famous, it is always full of curious people who want to take a picture with the She-Wolf of Lagorai).
Don't miss the breathtaking view that opens right in front of the main car park, over the Valsugana and its two lakes, Lake Caldonazzo and Lake Levico.
Near the She-Wolf of Lagorai there is one of our favorite places, the Rifugio Nif: alpine taste, to taste a good typical Trentino dish or drink a good herbal tea made from mountain herbs.
You should immediately take advantage of the opportunity to see this new work of art, because being made of wood, the She-Wolf will change over time, with the passing of the seasons, until it decomposes, following the philosophy of all Land Art.
