Description

The Franco Maria Ricci Labyrinth (Labirinto della Masone / Labirinto di Franco Maria Ricci) is a monumental green labyrinth which was opened on the outskirts of Parma in 2015. It is made of bamboo plants (more than 200,000) of the most varied kinds and forms. The length of all the paths in the Ricci labyrinth is more than 3 km / 2 miles, and it is thought to be the largest labyrinth of bamboo in the world! In the central courtyard of the labyrinth, right in the heart, there are large arched tunnels and a chapel in the shape of a pyramid. The Ricci labyrinth also houses a museum.
