THE SCULPTURE GARDEN, A CONTEMPORARY WONDERLAND BY MAGI’900 MUSEUM
Project | Itineraries | Art
Wander in an artistic and surreal green space capable of blowing your mind is a unique experience: live it near Bologna!
Like Alice, immersed in the deepest oneiric world full of bizarre creatures and abstract shapes, il Giardino delle Sculture (“The Sculpture Garden”) is a kind of contemporary Wonderland where unique artworks (mostly monumental sculptures and statues) create a charming path along this green urban area.
To be exact, MAGI’900 Museum’s Sculpture Garden is more than a creative garden: it’s the beating heart of a proper arts district project, designed to be available and open to the public.
Giulio Bargellini, collector and founder of MAGI’900, is the mastermind behind the idea of creating a timeless hamlet, where life and art will combine following the typical warmth of the Emilian style architecture.
The grassy plaza contemplates at the moment around twenty large permanent sculptures by well-known contemporary artists, like Simon Benetton, Nando Canuti, Lorenzo Guerrini, Gianni Guidi, Emilio Mattioli, Ivo Sassi and Cordelia Von Den Steinen.
So, the Sculpture Garden is conceived as an outdoor expansion of the Museum section dedicated to sculptures, which connect vertically different floors. Do not forget, indeed, that, first of all, MAGI’900 is an active private Museum, which organizes temporary and permanent exhibition all the year; some of the relevant Italian artists that the permanent exposition encompasses are: Campigli, Savinio, Guttuso, Ligabue, Manzoni, Modigliani and Fontana.
Due to the work in progress for expanding the arts district, it’s appreciated a request by phone (+39 051 68 61 545) or by e-mail (email@example.com) to the Museum offices; if you’re going to visit the Collection, you should definitely add the magic of the Sculpture Garden to your experience!
