Artists and designers
There are things that inspire us, make us happy, fulfill us, take our breath away, shift boundaries in our heads, light the way, relax the sight and the mind, speak to us. Slovenia has a great number of quality original artists to offer. In Alma vista, we are privileged to be able to showcase a small selection of these, who accompany us and co-create the Alma vista story, leaving profound marks and weaving new friendships. In hope this journey never ends, let us walk together and discover the immeasurable possibilities of creativity and imagination.
