Daniel Spoerri (* 1930) is a swiss dancer, director and visual artist of Romanian origin. He founded the “Nouveau Realisme” together with artist friends in Paris in the 1960s and made a name for himself above all with his “snare-pictures” and “Eat Art”.
In 1990 he began to set up the first sculptures on his 16 hectare property near Seggiano, at the foot of Monte Amiata. Today it has become a large sculpture garden known far beyond Italy with over one hundred art objects.
A lot of them are by Daniel Spoerri himself, but more than 50 artist friends are also present with their works. In the wide area, nature becomes your companion. The sculptures are integrated into the landscape as if by chance and the visitor is allowed to discover, be amazed and linger.
Come along with us on an art hike through the sculpture garden, where children can also discover and see exciting things.
We will give you information on Spoerri and the other artists and their works and can also tell you some interesting anecdotes. It is also a journey of discovery of the natural beauties of the park, where you can learn a lot about the flora of the Amiata area.
The duration of the tour is approximately 3 hours. If you want, you can have a bite to eat or drink or an aperitif in the park's Eat Art restaurant.
