THE GIANTS RETURN TO TODI

Risultati immagini per colonne di todi

Todi, one of the best preserved medieval towns in Umbria, has now acquired a contemporary touch. The four monumental Todi Columns by American sculptor Beverley Pepper,  have now returned to their original site in front of the Duomo.

The 8-12 metre high steel and iron pillars were erected in 1979 to adorn the main square of the borgo. At the time, they created a sensation. Subsequently, they went on tour to various USA cities and returned to Italy in the 1990s, appearing in Florence and at the Venice Biennial.

Forty years later, the Todi Columns have returned to their original site and will be an integral part of a larger project to create a sculpture park leading from Santa Maria della Consolazione at the bottom of the town to the ancient Rocca fortress, as part of the new Beverley Pepper Sculpture Park to be inaugurated on the 14 September 2019.
