Quinto Martini Park-Museum – Seano
3-hectare garden in Tuscany hosting 36 bronze statues by Quinto Martini
Quinto Martini Park-Museum is a beautiful garden that hosts the sculptures of Quinto Martini (Seano, 1908 – 1990), an Italian artist and poet capable of blending the ideas of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries’ French art with the suggestions of Etruscan art.
Quinto Martini’s works have been exhibited several times at Venice Biennale and at Rome Quadriennale.
The garden is located in the province of Prato, in the hills of Tuscany, in the small and quiet district of Seano, the artist’s birthplace.
The sculptures, centered above all on the human figure, interact perfectly with the landscape and give visitors the sense of fusion between culture, work, leisure and landscape that has always characterized the Tuscan way of approaching life.
At the opening ceremony, Quinto Martini said: “I want to dedicate Seano Park Museum to all women and men from all over the world”
The park covers an area of 31,530 square meters and was designed by the architect Ettore Chelazzi.
In Quinto Martini Park-Museum in Seano are exposed 36 bronze statues melted between 1931 and 1988.
It is one of the most important examples of twentieth-century art in Tuscany, with the particularity that the park is always open, 24 hours a day.
