“The most interesting encounters and experiences in my life have happened almost by chance. A simple conversation over coffee or a pleasant chat in the piazza can lead to unexpected adventures and genuine relationships. Perhaps it is because I have always loved meeting new people, exchanging ideas and sharing special moments. Or perhaps it is because chance is never really just ‘chance’. We are drawn to others with the same dreams of a good life, and we recognise when our meeting is an opportunity to experience something new and surprising. Imagine a lonely olive tree hidden deep in the woods ... a swing on a large branch overlooking a panorama of boundless beauty ... an old ruin on top of the hill enticing you to imagine what it could become... a glass of wine at a friend’s place or a visit to see what my mother is cooking today! So what about a coffee in the piazza and we venture into the hills? It doesn’t matter which path we take, they all lead to an extraordinary day of memories, excitement and surprise if your heart is open and your mind is clear! Yes, we call them surprises, yet we didn't expect anything else. "

Lying on the spa bed, we suddenly remember the bill on the table yet to be paid. Walking in the woods, the discussion we must face when we return to the office comes to mind. Eating in the restaurant, in a moment of silence, thoughts fly to the thousand tasks waiting for our attention. They are natural thoughts, but they generate anxiety. And they tire us as we expend mental energy analysing the past and trying to imagine the future. It all takes us away from the pleasure of the present and the possibility of being more creative and receptive.

The history of this place can be traced to the mid-70s when Anselmo Basso and Marianna Giordano, intuitive collectors who were seduced by the expressive power of contemporary art, began to buy works of art by famous artists as well as by unknowns. They did so with no plan and no intention to speculate, just a passion for the diversity they discovered. Their "landscape of art" is overrun with these works, and many artists - then as now - experience the house and the park as a space for research, planning and creation. They work in harmony with a majestic landscape, that of the Langhe, full of of history, anthropological memory and culture. The combination of art and nature that emerges here is magical and evocative: an exhibition story exploring the nature of the humans to shape and transform the world in which we live. Structured as an open air exhibition space with an area of 30 hectares and 63 installations, the Quarelli is today considered the most important park of sculptural art in the country.
