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

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.
