organized by Associazione Arte Continua of San Gimignano and is being
held for the tenth time.

invited to devise a specific project for the six councils involved in
the initiative. The artists spend some time in the towns and then each
one produces a site-specific work in a public space.

between city and country and to create new ties between Art, Architecture
and Landscape, giving back to art central role in shaping cities and

in public spaces increasing the artistic heritage of the cities.
