Each artist s work reflects, even if unconsciously, a continuitywith Tuscan traditions while bringing to bear their own culturalheritage and artistic vision.The gardens take many different forms, from majestic, formally designedacres punctuated with sculpture to tiny, intimate spaces that havecolors of every imaginable hue.

Daniel Spoerri has used the landscapeas a dramatic backdrop for great new works of art scattered along abotanic trail. Niki de Saint Phalle s extraordinary Tarot Garden housestwenty-two polychromatic sculptures representing the major arcana ofthe Tarot, while in Fernando Botero s Garden for the Goddess ofFertility, monumental bronze figures loom out of the trees.

MariellaSgaravatti s essays offer telling insights into the artistsmotivations, and explore the ways in which their work is intrinsicallyconnected to the magical beauty of the Tuscan landscape, while MarioCiampi s photographs evoke the atmosphere of each garden. Thedescriptions and images of the gardens found in this volume are auseful and original source of inspiration for anyone working in thefield.
