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

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

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.
