From the beginning, Italy has always had a strong reputation for being an extremely garden-centric country.
But over the last 20 years, it’s taken on an identity crisis, with some people abandoning the country’s traditional gardens for new urban environments.
Gardeners in Italy have been quick to adapt to the changes, and they’ve managed to keep up with the times with some fantastic examples of what Italian gardens can achieve.1.
Piazza dei CagliariIn the 19th century, the Piazzas Piazzo dei Cicero, the most famous of the Italian gardens, was a haven for artists and poets, and it’s one of the main reasons why people flock to the city.
In the 1960s, a group of architects and urban planners named the “Architectura Di Piazzi” (Architectural Piazas Pias), and they started a project to build a “garden of love” that would open up a new world of creativity.
The garden is still one of Italy’s most popular tourist attractions, and this is why we think the Pias has such a profound effect on people’s minds.2.
Mafra di SienaIn 1539, the French monk, Saint-Jacques de Sienas, established the first church in Rome, in what is now the Mafrani church.
He’s credited with helping to revive the city’s reputation for culture and art, but the church is not the only one that inspired him.
Mafra della Sienita is one of many churches that have sprung up in Rome since Saint-Claude’s death in 1569.
It’s a place that attracts people from all walks of life, from the artsy, artistic, and professional to the humble and religious.3.
The Guggenheim MuseumIn 1939, the Gugginheim Museum was built in New York City, and today, it is considered one of New York’s greatest cultural institutions.
Its collection includes works from the painter, photographer, and sculptor Raphael and the artist Claude Monet.
It was designed by Italian architect Antonio Vigna, who went on to design many of the world’s most iconic buildings.4.
The Palazzo delle Cipresso in FlorenceThere is an entire museum dedicated to the work of Italian painter Pietro Toscani, and the Palazzio delle Catan is the main exhibition space for his paintings.
It is a fascinating place to visit, where you can see and admire Toscano’s work, but you also get to explore the Palacio della Ciprina, the building that housed Toscana’s studio.5.
The Basilica di San Giorgio in RomeThis basilica, dedicated to St. Gregory the Great, was built by St. Francis de Sales, and is one in a series of great buildings that are part of the cathedral.
The basilica was dedicated in 1521, but was not finished until 1719.6.
Basilica delle Fontana in MilanIt’s not just the Basilica that is an amazing place to look at; the Basilicom Fontana is another great place to spend time, and one of our favourite places to see in Rome.
This is the oldest and largest building in Rome – and it has a fantastic view of the city, from a balcony that overlooks the river.7.
Palazzi della Tivoli in RomeIn 1885, architect and architect Santiago Calatrava began designing the Palazione della Turin, a modernist structure in the city that includes a huge sculpture garden.
The design was originally inspired by the gardens of the Romanesque town of Florence, and Calatraza later built his own villa there.8.
Villa Giorgione in RomeThe Palazzii Giorgi is the largest villa in Rome and it was built during the reign of Emperor Charles V in the 12th century.
The villa has been a symbol of Rome since the 13th century and it is one that has continued to grow and change since then.
The Villa Giole della Pia is one example of the many buildings that were added to the villa over the centuries, and its gardens have inspired some of the best gardens in the world.9.
Colosseum in RomeFor a truly unique experience, you might want to visit the Colossei.
The Colossesi is a popular attraction in Rome because it has the largest arena in Europe, and a giant rock in its centre.
If you want to see the Colossi from a completely different perspective, you can visit the “Museo da Museo del Centro” (the Museum of Nature in Rome).10.
