The Italian Garden Restoring a Renaissance Garden in Tuscany

by @

  • (0)

The remarkable story of the project undertaken by Paul Bangay and Monash University to transform a neglected car park at the university's Prato campus in Tuscany into a traditional Renaissance walled garden, befitting its location. The Italian Garden is part restoration story, part vicarious travel tale and along with chapters on the history of the Italian garden and the Renaissance, and Prato's troubled history with its neighbours, contains a completely fascinating account of how the discovery fifty years ago of a series of neglected and hidden fifteenth century frescos led to the creation of the stunning Palazzo Vaj garden, inspired by the water features, grottos and planting symmetry of classic Italian Renaissance gardens.
