The Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo’s Art Park is a permanent large sculpture park on the hill of San Licerio. Located within the Guarene township in the Piemonte Region, the park lies on a hillside overlooking woods, fields and fortifications – a place of extraordinary beauty belonging to the winemaking landscapes of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato, which are Unesco World Heritage sites. The Park expands into the out of doors the activities of the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, which was instituted in 1995 and dedicated to contemporary art. It was in Guarene that, in 1997, the Foundation opened its first location in the halls of the seventeenth-century Palazzo Re Rebaudengo.
The Park is a meeting place, a point of balance and a space for dialog between nature and the works of contemporary artists from all over the world, installed alongside rows of Nebbiolo grapes, among willows, cypress and oaks. The Park was designed by landscape architects Lorenzo Rebediani and Vera Scaccabarozzi, and was inspired by the mosaic of tiles composed by the fields, hazelnut groves and vineyards surrounding it.
The Art Park is open to the public and accessible by walking along a promenade, which was designed to offer visitors a multiplicity of paths and views of artworks and nature. Some of the installations were commissioned by the Foundation specifically for the Park, while others have found a new, harmonious home there.
The Park is an open-air museum, guided by a principle of full accessibility for everyone.

The Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation has always been committed to protecting the environment, also through the consolidated partnership with Asja Ambiente, an international group that has been operating in the field of renewable energy and environmental sustainability for over 25 years.
Particularly, Asja, with the CO₂ reduction platform, dedicated to offsetting CO₂ emissions, has planted over 2,500 trees in the Park. These plants contribute to the consolidation of the soil, the safety of the exhibition paths and over the next twenty years they will capture about 200 tons of CO₂ present in the air.
Since 1995, the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo is committed to foster contemporary art and culture by supporting new generations of artists, realising exhibitions, producing artworks, and actively involving the public.
