                Haus Segantini, Bregaglia, Switzerland .

                In August 1894, the Segantini family settled in Maloja and moved to the "Chalet Kuoni", built by the engineer of the Gotthard railway company Alexander Kuoni of Chur. Here he felt at home: the last creative years of the artist Giovanni Segantini were spent in the Engadine, as the fantastic light enchanted him. Born in 1858 in Arco (Trento), he had lost both his mother and father as a child, he was raised by his half-sister in Milan, where he began to paint despite his young age. In 1886 he moved to Savognin and in 1894 to the Maloja and Soglio. Five years later Giovanni Segantini died in the homonymous hut on the Munt da Bes-Cha (Mountain Sheep), above Pontresina, at the young age of 41 years.

                The Segantini studio was first built in Soglio in 1897 as a model for the great Engadine Alpine panorama that Giovanni Segantini planned for the Paris World's Exibition in 1900. He had it rebuilt in Maloja. The pavilion has the typical features of a panoramic building: the light and the sloping roof with a decorative shape, falling from above through the clerestory window. Segantini's giant project with a magnificently staged Engadine mountain landscape, which one could have "experienced" from a hill with platform built in the middle, could not be realized for financial reasons. The studio Segantini then served the artist mainly to accommodate his library. Segantini had hardly used it as a painting studio because he prefers to work outdoors. The studio Segantini was later actively used by his son Gottardo to receive the many Segantini interested people from all over the world and sometimes also to paint. In 1986, the studio Segantini was renovated by the architect Bruno Giacometti and opened to the public as a memorial and small museum.
