Contemporary art in Pienza and Siena

The beautiful town of Pienza hosts from 6 June to 30 August the interesting exhibition of a young Austrian sculptor.

Il dono dell'armonia-the gift of harmony

The artist often creates large bronze statues that will be exhibited in Piazza Pio II and Palazzo Piccolomini.
Helga Vockenhuber is often in Tuscany also because there are good foundries that make his job easier.
