The sculpture park in Casole d’Elsa by the artist Deva Manfredo
Dream Woods is a sculpture park created in the woods in Casole d’Elsa, made entirely from the fantasy of the German sculptor Deva Manfredo, who for over 25 years has built an artistic itinerary immersed in nature, situated within a large oak forest 600 metres above sea level.
This open-air museum winds through anthropomorphic figures that seem to emerge from the earth, mini temples and cities of ancient civilizations, majestic mandalas made with coloured stones, stones with the bizarre forms of trees, and large stones that act as carpets of woven colours.
The wood invites you to stop and perceive yourselves and nature following a guided meditation route, but it also invites you to play, with a stone workshop for adults and children alike, where you can test your creativity.
The view from Casole d’Elsa is breath-taking, with the rolling hills of the Siena countryside unfolding all aroundand, not far away, like a guardian watching over the village, the historic towns of San Gimignano and Volterra. ...
