  • Our guide took us over to see this modern work of art and she and another guide pushed & rotated it. Very cool.  more »
  • The small square of Pine Shishkin keeps in its center a masterpiece of modern sculpture called "Sphere in the Sphere." It was created by Arnoldo Pomoddoro and symbolizes the pernicious influence of man on nature. The polished ball with a diameter of 4 meters revolves around its axis. Previously, anyone could promote it, now it was fenced with a chain and allowed to approach it only guides. Something similar I met on the waterfront in Pesaro.
