The third season of Concerts at Sunset at the Amphitheatre is about to start. Also this year 12 concerts from tango to jazz, from opera to Celtic music, will take place in the magnificent setting of the Chianti Sculpture Park in Pievasciata - Siena.
The Chianti Sculpture Park is a permanent exhibition of contemporary installations and sculptures. Artists from all over the world have created 30 artworks, like a labyrinth, a rainbow, a huge keel, all perfectly integrated in the surrounding wooded area. Closed to the Park’s entrance an Amphitheatre was built in 2009, suitable to host any kind of art form. The wings are made of white Carrara marble and black granite from Zimbabwe. The steps and the stage are covered with tiles of volcanic lava. Some famous movie characters are “permanent spectators”.
