Listri's alluring photographs complement Cunaccia's historically detailed, aesthetically illuminating, substantial text in an ode to Italy's grand gardens and splendid parks. Spanning the far northern regions to Brindisi in the "heel of the boot," this visually sumptuous tour will whet the appetite of travelers yearning for the real thing. Pictured are the most poetic villas, the grandest statuary, and architectural fragments recalling ancient cultures. Gardeners will find unparalleled landscapes, so richly designed that Cunaccia's role as guide is a most demanding one. In that guise he sets the stage with literary quotations, following those with revealing descriptions of each garden's design elements and overall stylistic context. A rich feast that captures Italy's sublime beauty. Alice Joyce
