Bruno Saetti chose Montepiano as his home and workplace. It was here in the Casa del Mulino (Mill House) that he found the ideal environment for his artistic maturation, and more than once he expressed his intention to donate this land to the City of Vernio in the hope that it would become a botanical garden for public use. His idea was to create a quiet, meditative refuge for locals and visitors to the town--a prestigious Alpine health resort.
Saetti's wishes were respected after his death and there is now an enclosed area with a number of benches for a relaxing stop. Saetti's sculpture The Sun is located in the garden which is open to everyone, as would have been wanted by the artist.
