In the history of gardening those of Italy are the bridge between our world and the ancient world - their harmony, symmetry and serenity are at once inimitable and universally copied. During the past few years Italy has awoken to a gardening renaissance - interesting new schemes are being created all over the country, and there has been exemplary restoration of some historic gardens.
This book celebrates over a hundred of the finest Italian gardens open to the public. The authors take the reader on a journey to these places - they explore their history and context, as well as the stories behind the gardens, and discover how they were made and how they are maintained.

A real delight. Daily Mail
