Adventure and nature
Located in a Tuscan hamlet famous for its floriculture and the Palio dei Rioni, the Pinocchio park has been visited since the 1950s and is a noteworthy attractive fulcrum given the fame of the character worldwide. The stages of the book are marked by the bronze sculptures of Pietro Consagra, a prominent exponent of Italian contemporary abstractionism. However, Consagra was not the only artist to have been called into question: as regards the plastic arts, works by Marco Zanuto and Augusto Piccoli can be found within the structure. Noteworthy are the mosaics of Venturino Venturi in the Piazzetta of the Village of Pinocchio. All this narration for stations is surrounded by evergreens arranged ad hoc by Pietro Porcinai.
Fiction, gardens and butterflies
By consulting the official website of the park it is possible to realize the opportunity to combine the entrance ticket with the Garzoni garden and the Collodi butterfly house. The first is a natural gem to be enjoyed calmly. Well cared for and terraced in the Italian style - with statues and floral jubilation - it can be considered the "adult" counterpart of a day spent in Collodi, between magic and art. For naturalists, a look at the butterfly house is a must: here you can enjoy the company of multiple species of colorful giant butterflies free to flutter in a tropical greenhouse that reproduces their original environment. Together with the Garzoni garden we can consider the butterfly house as an example of a successful interaction between man and nature. Source: //richardtullochwriter.com/
