The first major work of contemporary art which was commissioned for the city of Prato. It is by the artist Henry Moore. Located near Piazza San Marco near where the ancient walls opened for the gate to Florence. This work stands out among those, by now numerous, commissioned for this area. Thirty large blocks of marble, personally selected by Moore in the Apuane quarries, which the artist—one of the most important exponents of 20th century art—provides a sense of organic expansion animated by an internal force of the material.
