At Garavicchio, a small fraction of the community of Capalbio, right on the border between Tuscany and Lazio, there’s the Tarot Garden. The Garden is the majestic work of the french-american artist Niki de Saint Phaille. A garden that collects her giant works, with statues from twelve to fifteen meters high, inspired by the figures of the main Tarot figures.
With a structure of iron and cement, covered by many-colored mosaics of mirror and glass of Murano. A trip, a dream, a place inside which you can move around freely without predetermined paths and let yourself be carried away by your emotions.
