The Oasi Zegna is a pre alpine natural area located in Piedmont, south-west of Monte Rosa, an hour's drive from the city of Biella. This 100 square kilometer protected park was created in the 1930s by the textile entrepreneur Ermenegildo Zegna and is now managed by the Zegna Foundation.The woods are mainly composed of European beech (Fagus sylvatica), to a lesser extent by Silver birch (Betula pendula) and different types of conifers.
The Oasis is located in the upper Val Sessera, traversed by the Sessera torrent, with altitudes between 1000 and 1600 meters above sea level. It is crossed by an extensive network of routes, three of which have been designed by Marco Mencagli and Marco Nieri specifically for the practice of Forest bathing
Moreover, it is possible to combine the visit of these paths with the Bioenergetic experience of “Bosco del Sorriso” (Forest of Smiles), a 2.5 km path with 16 trees located in particular sites where it is possible to find a special electromagnetic "nourishment" for the different organs of the body.
