"Labirinto Della Masone is located in Fontanellato, near Parma, Italy, covering an area of 6.8 hectares. The maze designed by former art publisher Franco Maria Ricci and architects Pier Carlo Bontempi and Davide Duto is more than 10 times the area of an American football field. The total length of the path is 2.9 kilometers. In this maze, more than 30 subspecies of bamboo grow rapidly, and the hedges can be up to 5 meters high. The pattern of this labyrinth is Roman style, and the paths are at right angles in the four interconnected quadrants. In Ritchie's view, bamboo is an amazing plant. It has no common diseases, and it also has the characteristics of purifying carbon dioxide in the air and being evergreen in winter. In addition to this complex labyrinth, there is also a collection of about 500 Franco Maria Ricci's artworks from the 1500s to the 20th century and a library. The library is dedicated to collecting some of the most outstanding and famous books, including most of the works of Gian Battista Bodoni and Alberto. The center of the maze is a square of 2044 square meters, surrounded by colonnades. The spacious plaza space will become a venue for concerts, gatherings, exhibitions and other cultural events. There is also a pyramid-shaped church on the side of the square overlooking the entire square, giving the site a religious character."
