Vaia Dragon: the symbol of this edition

Martalar’s handiwork stands guard as the wounded mountain heals

When the storm hits, all you can do is wait it out. Then, afterwards, you have your chance to react. Marco Martalar, an internationally renowned artist who works with wood, reacted by creating an unforgettable work of art: the Magré Dragon.

What Vaia destroyed in 2018 Marco gave new life to through his art. It goes to show that when talent, wisdom and empathy come together, Nature can be reborn from the ashes with beauty and dignity.

Leveraging its ingenuity, wisdom and heart empathy, Nature was reborn with beauty and pride.

Now, however, that Dragon, symbol of rebirth and hope is no more. It was destroyed by human hands who set fire to it, leaving only ashes and wounds in its place.

However, the Vaia dragon continues to watch the valley from up there and remains in all our hearts. Who knows if he will return…
