Castello Incantato "Filippo Bentivegna"

Via Filippo Bentivegna, 16, Sciacca, (Agrigento)

The Enchanted Castle is the place where the sculptor Filippo Bentivegna (Sciacca, 1888-967), with no particular artistic training, began to realize thousands of anthropomorphic sculptures, turning his farm into an outdoor museum. The artist's work, abandoned for a long time, was enhanced by the intervention of an assistant of Jean Dubuffet, theorist of the Brut Art. The Enchanted Castle is now owned by regional, managed by a cooperative and subject of critical studies as a significant work of the twentieth century. Some of the sculpted heads by Bentivegna are exhibited at the Museum of  Brut Artin Lausanne.
