At the conclusion of the celebrations dedicated  to the great American artist Beverly Pepper, from 15th September 2019 in Todi will be open to the public the Beverly Pepper Park. This is the first contemporary sculpture theme park in the Umbria region and the first one designed by the artist in the world.

A park featuring 20 sculptures designed, restored for the occasion and donated to the town by the artist, a natural-urban itinerary in green surroundings located within the medieval walls of the town and connecting the church of Santa Maria della Consolazione to the old town.
Connecting two main points of the town, the Park will allow visitors to fully enjoy the interaction between artworks, landscape, monumentality and an urban framework. 
These are monumental works created with different materials (iron, stainless steel, stone) that tell the story of the American artist's career from 1960 to the 2000s.
 “It is with great satisfaction – emphasises Pepper that I look on this new project for Todi, bringing new energy to the town whose history is intimately linked with my artistic career. I have always been committed to Land Art projects and to creating a vital connection between my sculptures and the natural landscape. Art and nature that encourage people to engage in an inner quest which extends to the infinite”.
Beverly Pepper has also created sculpture benches for the Park, called “lunettes”, made with local stone from the quarries of Lake Trasimeno. The lunettes are panoramic points where you can stop to admire the artworks and the landscape.
