A medieval atmosphere and contemporary spirit come together at Capalbio and its territory. Just outside the enchanting village, clinging to the hill, is the magical Tarot Garden, a visionary endeavour of the great French artist, Niki de Saint Phalle.
Capalbio is an enchanting medieval village, which is very active year round, above all in the summer. From the path along the great crenelated walls surrounding the town you can see incredible views. The Rocca Aldobrandesca Fortress with its impressive tower stands out among the roofs of the stone houses overlooking the narrow streets of the village. Of interest is also the Capalbio Cinema International short film festival, which takes place in October.
Near Capalbio is Garavicchio, where we find the extraordinary Tarot Garden, created by the French artist Niki de Saint Phalle. In 2 hectares, the artist placed 22 one-eyed sculptures, between 12 and 15 meters tall. The works depict the Major Arcana, the Tarot cards with most meaning.
Niki de Saint Phalle began this giant project in 1979 with the collaboration of her husband, Jean Tingueli, who is also a famous post-WWII artist, and with important architects, among which Mario Botta. Building the garden using her own money, the artist met with considerable difficulty which delayed completion. Through stubbornness and determination, she completed the Tarot Garden in 1996 and it was opened to the public in 1999. Since then, it has become one of the main attractions of southern Maremma.
Capalbio is 35 km from Agriturismo Poggio Mirabile and can be reached in about half an hour. The Tarot Garden is about 7 km from Capalbio and 40 km from Poggio Mirabile.
