Only a half hour bus ride from Prato and you find yourself in this serene oasis of sculpture. The peaceful setting wrapped in the green, Carmigano Hills of Seano, provides a wonderful stage for these bronze masterpieces.
The Quinto Martini Sculpture Park was opened in 1988 two years before the artist’s death at age 82.
With the 36 sculptures installed here it represents one of the largest outdoor sculpture museums exhibiting just one artist.
These works were created over six decades and illuminate a lifetime of human conditions.
Expressive modes range from representative portraitures to stylized metaphors.
What a wonderful legacy and cultural jewel. I am both humbled and inspired. The day we visited local residents pushed strollers, biked, picnicked and one mother appeared to be helping her son with homework. All living what Martini captured in bronze.
