HIC TERMINUS HAERET – Il Giardino di Daniel Spoerri
At the beginning of the Nineties the Swiss Artist Daniel Spoerri started to establish a sculpture garden in the South of Tuscany, 60 km south from Siena: »Il Giardino di Daniel Spoerri«. It has been opened for the public in 1997 and can hence be visited from Easter until October. By now there are 113 installations by 55 artists in an area of about 16 ha. Since 1997 »Il Giardino di Daniel Spoerri« is also a Foundation called »Hic terminus haeret – Il Giardino di Daniel Spoerri«.
The name »Il Giardino« derives from its geographical position. On old maps the place is called »Il Paradiso«. Thus it is a »Garden of Eden«.
The landscape here has little similarity to the sparse vegetation of the hills around Siena dotted with isolated cypresses. The slopes of Monte Amiata – Tuscany’s highest mountain – is densely wooded and occasionally interspersed with lush fields. The majestic terrain offers different views of Tuscany than those typically found in picture calendars. The diverse vegetation in Il Giardino features a variety of rare plants, common to mountainous regions.
