Giardino delle Rose
Rose Garden With a View and Folon's Statues
It also has a Japanese Shorai oasis, donated in 1998 by Kyoto, Florence's twin city, and a dozen bronze and ceramic sculptures by Belgian artist Jean-Michel Folon, who had always loved Florence ever since he hitchhiked there as a young man, donated by his widow in 2005. His Partir, a bronze outline of a suitcase with a ship sailing the waves inside, frames a splendid view of Florence.
