Mauro Staccioli, born in 1937, is an Italian sculptor. At the end of the sixties he decided to dedicate himself to sculpture. His idea is to meet people where they live, which leads him to create sculptures for urban places. His sculptures are “marks”, traces of a passage.
He wants to affect the people who are usually found in a place and prompt them to experience that place in a different way. His sculptures always have a strong relationship with the place where he works.
In Sites of Experience, Mauro Staccioli reinterprets Tuscan landscape through a group of grand environmental sculptures installed throughout his hometown of Volterra and its environs, tracing a path where art, history and culture meet and synthesize.
