About the Event
Join Garden expert, Amy Kupec Larue for a presentation focusing on how Italian garden art evolved, spreading not only around Italy but across its borders. Near Rome, the importance of display along with the drama, emotion and illusions experienced in the Baroque gardens such as Orsini’s pagan Sacro Bosco reflect the changing times at the end of the 16th & early 17th centuries. The arrival of the picturesque landscape will be late in coming but well worth the wait, fueled by new discoveries, better transportation and fearless plant hunters. We will wrap up with a look at some contemporary gardens and sculpture parks well worth discovering on your next trip to the Peninsula.
