The Monster Park or Sacred Wood of Bomarzo, is a monumental complex situated on the slopes of a true natural amphitheatre. The architect and antique dealer, Pirro Ligorio, commissioned by Prince Pier Francesco Orsini, designed and supervised the construction of the park in 1547. There are examples of what could be classified as impossible architecture, such as the leaning house, and many enigmatic statues that perhaps represent the stages of an alchemical matrix. Salvador DalĂ­ spoke about the Monster Park as a unique historical invention.
