Influenced by Gaudi's Parc Guell in Barcelona, and the mannerist park of Bomarzo, Niki de Saint Phalle decided that she wanted to make something similar; a monumental sculpture park created by a woman.

In 1974, she was donated some land in Garavicchio, Tuscany, about 100 km north-west of Rome along the coast.

The garden, on which planning started in 1978, contains sculptures of the symbols found on Tarot cards.

It opened in 1998, after more than 20 years of work.

The garden was still incomplete when Niki de Saint Phalle died.

With elaborate illustrations and sensitively written texts this book presents in detail the formation of the garden and the underlying ideas.
