Daniel Spoerri Garden

At the beginning of the Nineties the Swiss Artist Daniel Spoerri started to construct a sculpture garden in the South of Tuscany, 80 km south from Siena: “Il Giardino di Daniel Spoerri”.The garden, now contains 103 installations by 50 artists; It was opened for the public in 1997 and can be visited from Easter until October.

The name Il Giardino“ derives from its geographical position, but an old maps of the place calls this area “Il Paradiso”, the paradise, thus it is a “Garden of Eden”. Regarding the structure, the landscape is very different from the typical Tuscan views that we are used to see; There is snow in winter (The Monte Amiata is even known as a skiing area) and in summer of course, especially in August, it is very hot and dry.
