Brufa is a small village in the municipality of Torgiano, Umbria, with a population of only 600 people and an enviable location on the hills facing Perugia, Foligno and Assisi. Since 1987, its rural landscape – shaped and transformed over the centuries by olive groves and vineyards – is home to art project “Scultori a Brufa. La strada del vino e dell’arte” (“Sculptors in Brufa. The wine and art road”), which has formed a beautiful itinerary around sculptures by contemporary artists from Italy and abroad.
