Chianti Sculpture Park
by Laura Tansini


Pievasciata is a small village of no more than 200 inhabitants, located 12 kilometers from Siena in Chianti country. Home to a fine 12th-century church, the town also hosts a more contemporary attraction, Piero Giadrossi’s Parco Sculture del Chianti. At the Chianti Sculp­ture Park, which is not really a park in the sense of a designed, manicured landscape, the sculptures are spread out and hidden in a forest that is still as wild as it was when Giadrossi bought the land. The exploration of this untamed woodland makes the search for art particularly fascinating.
