Synopsis: To many of us, the great gardens of Italy seem like paradise on earth. But how much do we know of their history, and the people who created them?
In this ravishing book, illustrated with contemporary paintings, drawings and prints as well as photographs of the gardens today, Helena Attlee tells their story. She starts with Petrarch – still looking to medieval chronicles for advice on how and when to plant – and goes on to the Renaissance and those first gardens to emerge from architects' plans. Then she describes the great gardens of the Medici; the first botanic gardens; the weird Mannerist gardens and their grottoes followed by the Baroque splendour of Isola Bella and the Villa Aldobrandini; the Neoclassical and Picturesque gardens of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; and how, in the twentieth century, expatriates with money to lavish on their villas and gardens brought new delights.

About the Author: YOKO KAWAGUCHI was born in Tokyo and educated in the United States, Canada and Japan. She has lived in the UK for the last twenty years. The author of Serene Gardens: Creating Japanese Design and Detail in the Western Garden, she lectures on Japanese garden history, and has appeared on BBC Radio Four's Woman's Hour and the BBC World Service.

Book Description Die »italienische Reise« gestern und heute: Der kulturhistorische Streifzug durch Italiens Gärten führt von Petrarca und der Frührenaissance bis zu Pietro Porcinai und der Moderne, quer durch alle Regionen Italiens: von der Villa d'Este in Tivoli, dem Sacro Bosco von Bomarzo über die Villa Lante bei Viterbo bis zur Isola Bella im Lago Maggiore. Aber auch weniger bekannte Gartenentdeckungen aus dem 18., 19. und 20. Jahrhundert werden ausführlich in Wort und Bild porträtiert. Ein ungemein lebhaftes Bild italienischer Gartenkunst, das außerdem durch vielfältige Illustrationen - historische Aufnahmen, Stiche und Kunstwerke, Pläne und Archivzeichnungen sowie zeitgenössische Fotografien - optisch abgerundet wird. Diese Kulturgeschichte liest sich spannend und amüsant zugleich, ohne den wissenschaftlichen Anspruch zu verlieren. Lassen auch Sie sich verzaubern von dem faszinierenden Zusammenspiel von Natur und jahrhundertealter Gartenkultur in Italien! (Text englisch). 25 x 30 cm, 208 Seiten, zahlr. farb. Abb., pb.
