Park of sculptures in Brufa

Art treasures in the open air

Along the ridge of the Brufa hill, in the municipality of Torgiano a few kilometres from Perugia, nature, the urban landscape and sculptural art merge, creating a totally original relationship with the territory, a dialogue that opens up to the imagination of visitors, and to the changing seasons and natural changes.

Sculptors in Brufa. La Strada del Vino e dell'Arte is a project started in 1987; the park is enriched every year thanks to the participation of the greatest contemporary sculptors of international renown.

Today there are more than 30 permanent sculptures, created for the territory by the artists; a visit to this splendid corner of Umbria offers a unique experience that begins in the streets of the village and extends towards the surrounding countryside characterised by evocative views, in which the vineyards of Torgiano's prestigious wine production stand out.

A new natural and cultural itinerary

In this surprising landscape, all the sculptural works become cornerstones of the urban fabric. Each space designated for permanent installations is chosen by the artist personally, who lives and studies the territory to get to know it in all its expressions, creating a natural and cultural itinerary in constant dialogue with the territory and its traditions that is renewed every year.

Many well-known sculptors from around the world have chosen to enhance and enrich the Umbrian village with their art, from the very first work that kicked off the event: Brufa (1987) by the great sculptor Massimo Pierucci, as a tribute to his parents' hometown and the rural tradition from which the artist feels he comes.
