Opened to the public in the 1990s, the sculpture garden was created by the Swiss artist Daniel Spoerri, who moved to Amiata in the late 1980s. The name derives from its geographical position on old maps, where it is called "Il Paradiso", therefore, by extension, "the Garden of Eden". The garden’s variegated vegetation is characterized by a variety of rare plants which are native to mountainous regions. In its area of 16 hectares, 113 contemporary art installations created by Spoerri and about fifty other artists are exhibited. The garden can be visited from Easter to October.
