The bronce sculpture „der Säumer“ of Tim Steiner has found its location in the visitor centre of the „Viamala“ gorge. The center was designed by the local architects Stefan Kurath and Ivano Iseppi in 2014. The sculpture is a historical illustration of the early trade travellers who took the perilous route between Switzerland and Italy through the deep gorge across the Alps with valuable goods such as wine or spices. With 60,000 paid „views“ by visitors each year, the gorge and now also the bronze sculpture is one of the major tourist highlights of the region.
Thanks to the team of the Viamala Visitor Centre for the smooth cooperation and to the company Willy Stäbli Ing. AG for providing the sculpture base.
