The park of Cupa rises in the 50s with the definitive road layout around the city walls and sees the important contribution of the well-known Tuscan landscape designer Porcinai who took care of the accommodation. A schematic design drawing gives the guidelines for Porcinai‘s intervention: from an unhealthy, steep, inaccessible area, used until then as a landfill, the Cupa ditch becomes a place that, while framing the modernity of the new gallery, opens to the historic city through the creation of an access staircase inserted in a medieval tower. From the stone benches that mark the paths, the view includes the peri-urban landscape downstream and the urban walls upstream. At the time, the garden was part of urban mobility as a path in the green to reach the historic center. In the fifties and sixties the park is the ‘beach’ of Perugians.
