The sculpture garden exceeds the concept of the traditional museum. It’s a meeting place between art and nature. Many artists came to Florence to find inspiration for their art…and they remained here!
The artworks will be animated with games and stories of the lives of the artists, which the expert guide in Tuscan contemporary art parks will highlight. It’s a perfect way to discover Florence and its natural beauties from a different perspective.
The sculpture gardens can be reached by public bus or by private transportation.
The visits can be extended to include more of Tuscany’s sculpture gardens, such as the Daniel Spoerri Garden, the Niki de Saint Phalle Tarot Garden, and the Pinocchio Garden.
