Close to the train station This huge work of art by Alexander Calder imposes itself by form and proportion.

The steel symbol of the city
Sep. 2018 • Couples
The monumental sculpture is another one that was realized for the famous exhibition organized in 1962 as a part of the annual festival and dedicated to the “Sculptures in the city”. The black painted steel structure is the work of Alexander Calder, one of the most important American sculptors. Named after the Lombard king, it was located in front of the train station and soon became one of the recognizable symbols of the city.

Great to see street art
Sep. 2018 • Couples
Not that everyone will like what’s on display but the idea of street art appeals to us after the plethora of ugly graffiti we’ve recently witnessed in Spain and Italy. A great move

An open door to Spoleto.

The sculpture is in front of the railway station. It was erected with funds from the EU as Spoleto holds artistic festivals every year.

The Open AIr Sculpture is very modern and does not fit with the beautiful surroundings of Spoleto. It seems very out of place

Spolete Trains Station's Teodelapio
Jul. 2015
If you arrive to Spoleto via train you'll see the Teodelapio as you leave he train station. You can hire a taxi, catch a local bus, or venture by foot to explore the lower part of Spoleto from this location. You can always catch an escalator to Piazza Mercato or to the Rocco. Depending on where you are going the escalator is an option newcomers to Spoleto must try.

Open air sculpture
Mar. 2016 • Couples
The open air sculpture known as 'Teodelapio' cannot be missed out the front of the Spoleto Train Station, the sculpture was designed by the American sculptor Alexander Calder for the open air exhibition in 1962. The name is credited to that of a Duke of Spoleto from the 7th century.

Very ugly sculpture
Nov. 2013
You step out of the train station and this is what you see. I think this 1960's modern "art" is hideous. It is gigantic and immediately blocks what would otherwise be a lovely view of Spoleto up on the hilltop. Don't bother going to it.

Hard to miss
Jul. 2012 • Family
This sculpture is located just outside of the train station in Spoleto. It is there since the early 1960's but looks a bit neglected now. It's nice to see such a modern sculpture with the backdrop of the old town.
