The open air sculpture known as 'Teodelapio' cannot be missed out the front of the Spoleto Train Station, the sculpture was designed by the American sculptor Alexander Calder for the open air exhibition in 1962. The name is credited to that of a Duke of Spoleto from the 7th century.

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.

This sculpture is located just outside of the train station in Spoleto. It is there since the early 1960's but looks a bit neglected now. It's nice to see such a modern sculpture with the backdrop of the old town.

Spoleto is filled with secrets of Alexander Calder's art and this is just one of them!
