Parco dell'Arte

It was created in 2013 with the installation of works of art as sculpture-installations in a naturalistic area already filled with paths, routes and clearings that develop between the North-eastern shore of the Lago di Mezzo, the building known as "Sparafucile", the Southern boundaries of the Burgo Paper Factory and, to the East, by Strada del Forte on the Eastern shore of Lago di Mezzo.
Almost to protect nature and the location's high natural value, a decision was made to create a path in which the works underlined the natural value in a sustainable manner, with respect for plant life as well as environmental constraints.
Every year, the Mantova Creativa cultural association, in collaboration with the Parco del Mincio Authority and Tea SpA, gives out the "Parco dell'Arte" award.
The purpose is not only to promote contemporary art, but also - by means of the works themselves - to bring value to an area of interest in environmental terms, on the outskirts of the city of Mantua, during the Mantova Creativa cultural event.
The selected works in the various editions are used to create the Parco dell'Arte.
