The Monsters Of His Mind

The Monsters Of His Mind

In 1547, Prince Vicino Orsini commissioned work to begin on a park filled with twenty-four natural bedrock-sculpted art pieces. Most of these are based on grotesque figures of mythological origin that were important during this time period. The park, currently considered by many to be the first theme park, was called Bosco Sacro. It is known today as “Monster Park”, located in Bomarzo, Italy. It eventually became dedicated to the loving memory of his wife, Giulia Farnese, who died in 1560 before the park was completed. The Prince commissioned Pirro Ligorio, well-known at the time for finishing St. Peter’s Basilica after Michelangelo died, to design these works. Sculptor Simone Moschino then created these, primarily as a sculpture garden which were popular during the day. My purpose here is to showcase the talent and dedication of these two artists in a moody glimpse back in history with a sense of mystery.

What is it about forgotten places (especially ones with vintage vehicles!), that some people find irresistible? For me, it is the sense of history one gets while walking amongst structures shrouded in the mystery and moodiness of how time has reclaimed these abandoned artifacts leaving behind only its silent monuments.
