Capalbio is the most southern town of Tuscany and, because of the context in which it is and his historical-artistic importance in Renaissance age, Capalbio has been nicknamed also the little Athens. Along the coast there are beautiful beaches and, formed by the brackish water of the sea, the evocative coastal lake of Burano, that is part of a natural reserve. The reserve protects the flora (typically Mediterranean shrubs) and the fauna, constituted above all of birds. In Capalbio it is absolutely to visit the Giardino dei Tarocchi (Garden of the Tarot Cards), a park conceived by the Franc-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle (1930 - 2002) and realized from 1979. The Giardino dei Tarocchi is inspired to the Güell park of Barcelona by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudì, with its colourful mosaics. With the realization of its fantastic garden, the artist realized a dream. The garden, perfectly inserted in the landscape of Tuscany, has a strongly esoteric meaning. The 22 major arcana of the Tarot Cards are represented through colorful and imposing sculptures, covered of ceramics, mosaics made of mirrors and glasses. The fencing wall, built with a material of the area (tuff), every day divides the reality from the fascinating magic atmosphere of the Giardino dei Tarocchi, where also the concept of the time dissipates.
