Paul Fuchs Garden of sounds

A miniature park

This small park – museum of about two hectares, in the private garden of the German artist Paul Fuchs, draws pilgrims from a broad spectrum of music and art lovers. The Garden of Sounds is located in Boccheggiano, a small village of the municipality of Montieri (first country of the Maremma agreed to join the Kingdom of Italy), in the area of the metalliferous hills.

The metal lightness

Paul Fuchs works with an unusual trait: all the installations emit sounds depending on the direction and intensity of the wind. The lightness of these metal installations gives an idea of fragility contributing to the exaltation of the poetry and the strong fascination that fill all these works: massive sculptures of copper, ironbronze, and other metals appear light and spindly.
