“I’ve never been happier than I was when I was in a factory,” the American artist Beverly Pepper, famous for her massive oxidized-metal sculptures, said earlier this year. In the 1960s, Pepper moved to Todi, Italy, where she became the first American artist to use Cor-ten steel. A 1970s exhibition of her sculptural columns, soon known as “Todi columns,” brought international recognition to the picturesque town. Todi is now returning the favor: September 14 marks the inauguration of a display of Pepper’s columns, alongside several sculptures the artist has donated to the town, in its hillside Parco della Rocca. —J.V.
