There are also many contemporary art parks in Tuscany. Take, for example, the Fattoria di Celle in Santomato situated on the hills around Pistoia where the splendid Baroque villa with its Italian garden and nineteenth-century park host a large collection of works.
Continuing to Pievasciata, among the hills of the Terre di Siena, there is the Chianti Sculpture Park, where the charming artistic installations are distributed along a circular path that crosses an undisturbed oak and holm oak forest.
The Daniel Spoerri Garden is a large and enchanting sculpture park created by the Swiss artist in Seggiano, Maremma, on the slopes of Monte Amiata.
In the municipality of Capalbio there is the Tarot Garden, one of the most fascinating artistic parks in Tuscany and also one of the most original and fun attractions of the Maremma. The artist who created it, Niki de Saint-Phalle, was inspired by Gaudi's Parc Guell in Barcelona.
The Rose Garden is located on a hill overlooking Florence, a few steps from Piazzale Michelangelo; in addition to hosting numerous types of plants and roses, the park is known for the permanent exhibition of sculptures by the Belgian artist Jean-Michel Folon.
Also in Florence, particularly in summer, you can find one of the most fascinating places that combines ancient and modern art, Forte Belvedere. The terraces of this splendid Renaissance fortress, built at the end of the sixteenth century by Grand Duke Ferdinando I de 'Medici and designed by Bernardo Buontalenti, is the perfect place for contemporary sculpture exhibitions.
The permanent collection of contemporary art at Villa La Magia in Quarrata, in the province of Pistoia, winds through a sensorial journey within a beautiful and unique museum park where the works of the artists blend into the landscape, integrating into the spirit of the place and its story until it becomes an intrinsic part of it.
Unique and creative installations are also found in Seano, near Carmignano (Prato) at the Quinto Martini park museum; painters, sculptors, graphic artists and ceramists have made Cantagallo an intriguing destination for contemporary art thanks to the open-air museum of Luicciana.
Finally, we advise you to visit the village of Volterra and its surroundings, where you can admire the works of Mario Staccioli, some of which seem to frame the landscape. In the countryside around Asciano, you'll find the Site Transitoire, a monumental artwork by Jean-Paul Philippe, a “non-walled home” with a stone chair, a window, and no covering but the sky.
