The Sculpture Park of Chianti

Set deep (really deep) in the countryside of beautiful Tuscany is The Sculpture Park of Chianti. Established in 2004 as a private enterprise, the park offers a trail of around 30 works of art in woodland to the south of Vagliagli. Reached by dirt track road only, it is well worth a visit.

Artists from around the world were invited to view the location, wander the woodland and then create a piece of sculpture specific to that site. The results are varied, interesting and beautiful. With a huge variety of media from glass to metal and wood to stone, each artwork is intended to blend in perfectly with nature and its woodland environment.
