A journey into the Masone Labyrinth: the biggest labyrinth on hearth. With an exclusive interview to its creator, Franco Maria Ricci
The Masone Labyrinth is a proper cultural center created by the creative genius of Franco Maria Ricci: renowned Italian publisher and designer who made the diffusion of culture and the sanctification of beauty his life long missions. Within the fantastical architectures of the Labyrinth complex there are a museum, a cultural center, a coffee shop, a restaurant, rooms for exhibitions, two squares. And, last but not least, the biggest labyrinth in the world, composed by more than 200.000 bamboo plants. With a surface of almost 8 hectares.
However it’s not in the touristic sphere that the Masone Labyrinth finds its definitive and significant dimension. Indeed the journey throughout Franco Maria Ricci’s Labyrinth is not a journey into a real dimension. But a journey into the substance and into the concept at the base of the work. The complex alienates the visitor, catapulting him in a parallel universe where time and history can be observed but not lived.
