The official presentation of the Garden says, “Here you cross a Tuscany not as you know it from the photos in the calendar or in a postcard, but a lush and enchanted landscape hiding mysterious and unexpected encounters with artistic signs now camouflaged, now trying to impose themselves to nature “.
The Garden, now a non-profit cultural foundation, was opened in 1997, and hosts 113 installations not only by Spoerri but also by 55 artists, on a total area of 16 hectares.
Among the artists present in the garden, there are some big names of Italian and international art of recent decades, such as Arman, Nam June Paik, Luigi Mainolfi, Aldo Mondino and many others. And on the site of the park you can also find the cards of all the works of the Garden.
The garden is characterized not only by the artistic path, but also by a botanical path of great value.
