The Chianti Sculpture Park, a permanent exhibition of contemporary installations and sculptures, was born in 2004 from an initiative of the Giadrossi spouses, both passionate about art. The main characteristic of the Park is the integration between art and nature. Each artist visited the forest and then made a specific proposal for the chosen place. The combination of sculptures and woods, sounds, colors and light is total. In fact, here the work of man does not tend to prevail over nature, but to integrate and enhance it. Artists from all five continents and different materials were chosen to give the visitor an overview of the variety and importance of contemporary art in today's world.
