Chianti Sculpture Park is located in Tuscany about 7 miles (11.2 km) north
of Siena, Italy.
area is famous worldwide for its beautiful hilly landscape, its vineyards
and the evergreen olive trees and Cyprus trees. Quiet medieval villages
are scattered here and there; the small hamlet of Pievasciata, with its
church of San Giovanni Battista, dating back to the XI century, is just
one kilometer away.
Giadrossi the founder of this Park, has travelled extensively for over
20 years and has always collected small and large contemporary sculptures.
His vision was to share with the discerning visitors of Tuscany, his love
for sculpture and so he decided to create a permament exhibition along
a shadowy trail which runs through a beautiful wood of oaks.
artist chose the site for his or her installation, thus each work becomes
a unique presence in the corner of the wood where it is mounted. To select
the artists Piero was helped by an Art Committee and careful thought was
given to the nationality and the media used. Twenty countries are represented
so far and this makes the Park truly unique in Italy. One of the objectives
of the Park was to give room to artists barely known in Europe, but famous
in their country of origin; significant talents that otherwise
would have no exposure to the western public.
exhibition will be held annually in the amphitheater.
the entrance of the Park an old building which was a pottery, has been
transformed into a large art gallery and so visitors who have admired
the large sculptures in the Park can have a chance to admire smaller works
made by the same artists.
