At his country home in Fontanellato, in Italy, Franco Maria Ricci created a cultural park which will be the world’s largest bamboo labyrinth.
Together with the Italian architects Pier Carlo Bontempi and Davide Dutto they worked for eight years. The ‘Labirinto della Masone’ as it is called takes 17 acres of land and will open to the public later this year. It includes cultural spaces of more than 54,000 square feet and will house the Franco Maria Ricci’s art collection which includes around 500 works of art from the 1500s up to the twentieth century. Also, all the books he created and edited will also be exhibited.
