As I settle back into the office routine at the Phillips, my mind drifts back to Tuscany.  Last time I wrote about the surprise of a powerful Antony Gormley exhibition in San Gimignano.  I want to share a photograph of another contemporary sculpture, a large site specific work by Anish Kapoor.  The cone shaped concrete form was nestled within the fortress walls that ring the hilltop town.  It took some work and persistence to find the piece, but was worth the effort.  It felt like a secret, an art treat that revealed itself especially for us.
