Oasy Contemporary Art and Architecture


Love Letter - From June 30th to November 3rd

OCA, where art and architecture dialogue with nature

Summer arrives and OCA Oasy Contemporary Art and Architecture, the place dedicated to art and architecture, reopens to the public 900 meters above sea level, in the Pistoia Apennines, within the Oasi Dynamo nature reserve.
Under the artistic direction of Emanuele Montibeller, at OCA, as the name of the place implies, art and architecture are integrated with the nature that hosts them, and await visitors after a long walk in the woods to welcome them with an exhibition inside a spectacular exhibition space surrounded by greenery, and, soon, with an outdoor trail featuring environmental installations by artists and architects.
On June 30, OCA opens its season with Love Letter, a major exhibition by artist Pascale Marthine Tayou, whose research focuses on the relationship between man and nature, organized in collaboration with Galleria Continua and curated by Marco Bazzini and Emanuele Montibeller.

Pascale Marthine Tayou's exhibition opens to the public on June 30th and will be on view until November 3rd.


With its path immersed in nature OCA offers visitors a new world to discover and experience together, in which man and what he creates live with the environment and indeed interact with it constantly.

OCA, an Oasis Dynamo project

Oasi Dynamo is a WWF-affiliated nature reserve that, in addition to environmental restoration and conservation activities in the area, has also opened up over the years to hospitality, eco-tourism, and the dissemination of a sustainable culture of the environment.

Oasi Dynamo is committed to promoting research useful for furthering knowledge of the natural environment and biodiversity conservation by cooperating with universities and educational centers.
The Reserve is home to Oasyhotel, Italy's first luxury hotel in a WWF-affiliated oasis that offers guests a stay in eco-lodge surrounded by unspoiled nature.
A variety of experiences are possible within the oasis, from field trips and excursions to summer camps and educational activities for schools.

Visitor Center

The Visitor Center is the beating heart of activities in the Oasi Dynamo Nature Reserve: it houses a multipurpose hall for conferences, courses and events, educational activities for schools and families. Here you will find the ‘Casa Luigi’ restaurant with cafeteria service for a lunch or snack inside the reserve.
