The Quercus Wood and Rocco, the giant Owl

A thematic itinerary that starts from the entrance to San Pietro in Vincoli and develops on three levels and climbs up to Rocco, the panoramic giant Owl.

A portal introduces the visitor into the magical world of the fairy tale that is presented to the visitor in a book supported by a rough hand of rock with three fingers, a first clue that suggests the invitation to imagination.

Different creatures will appear along the way, some inspired by native floral species and all created in synergy between the artists of the “Borgo” and the artisans of Bienno, the works decline the main materials of the territory wood, stone and iron.

Quercus, the wise and powerful protective spirit of the Wood, stands on a ledge, supported by a tree.
