I took this photograph in Valentino Park in Turin. I was amazed at the beautiful sculptures created by Rodolfo Marasciuolo. He inspired me to run home and create something extraordinary for my garden. I’ll add it to my to-do list. Here’s a link to Turin. It’s a lovely city to visit. Here’s a link to a video I took. Check out the cat on the rock. Note: the animals in the park are well fed and totally ignore our presence. Love it!
Excerpt from Torino Top News.
The fisherman was created by Rodolfo Marasciuolo, the gardener-artist who embellishes the parks of Turin.
In Rodolfo’s free time, he dedicates himself to his passion, art. He creates sculptures and art installations with which he decorates parks and gardens, decorations so fascinating that it is impossible to pass by and not be struck by them. Rodolfo creates sculptures halfway between reality and fantasy, perfectly set in the floral scenery surrounding them.
Stralcio del articolo- Torino Top News-Tra lavoro e arte.
Questa opera è stata realizzata da Rodolfo Marasciuolo, il giardiniere-artista che abbellisce i parchi di Torino.
Nei suoi momenti liberi, si dedica alla sua passione, ovvero l’arte. Crea sculture e installazioni artistiche con le quali decora parchi e i giardini. Decorazioni talmente affascinanti che è impossibile passarci vicino e non rimanerne colpiti. Rodolfo realizza sculture a metà tra la realtà e la fantasia che sono perfettamente incastonate nello scenario floreale che li circonda.
What a fun piece of art for a garden! I wonder if people try to sit on the bench beside the sleeper?
I was tempted to do that myself. But no one sat beside him while we strolled in the park.There’s probably a sign somewhere saying Don’t touch!
