Art and music at the Chianti Sculpture Park

  • Art and music at the Chianti Sculpture Park

    A woodland gallery of sculptures and installations created by artists from around the world – we’re not sure which we like best, the art or the natural setting.

    The exhibits are weird, wonderful and thought-provoking – among our favourites is The Labyrinth, a maze made from aquamarine glass bricks by UK artist Jeff Saward. This is also the location of La Fornace Art Gallery, a collection of more than 200 contemporary works by Asian, African, South American and European artists, housed in a former pottery. And if you’re around on a Tuesday in July or August, catch one of the open-air concerts in the marble and granite amphitheatre.
