The Sound Garden, a park of stones with a thousand melodies

The Sound Garden is located in the picturesque and lively village of San Sperate in southern Sardinia, about 12 miles from Cagliari. This unique artistic jewel is much more than an enchanting garden, it is also a work of art that manifests itself through sound, nature and human creativity. It is an open-air museum, born from the creative mind of the Sardinian artist Pinuccio Sciola, famous for his unique works of art that combine stone and sound.

The Sound Garden is a universe of megalithic stones scattered along the paths and open spaces of a garden pervaded by the scent of citrus groves – a place where visual, auditory and olfactory elements intertwine in extraordinary harmony. Each sculpture emits unique notes and sounds when touched or crossed by the wind, transforming the garden into a place where art and nature embrace in a melodic dance. The Sound Garden is not just a static work of art, but a constantly evolving place. The seasons, the weather, and the visitors all contribute to an ever-changing experience. Each visit is unique, as the sound and appearance of the garden vary over time and with visitor interactions.

The sculptures are made from the basaltic stones typical of the region, a black stone that has been used by Sciola over the decades to create works of art all over the world. With strategically placed incisions and cavities, the artist has managed to bring out sounds and melodies, allowing visitors to become an active part of the work of art itself. San Sperate, already known for its lively art scene and colorful murals is even richer in culture thanks to the Sound Garden. This magical place interprets the creative soul of the local community and attracts visitors from all over the world eager to immerse themselves in a unique multi-sensory experience.
