ITALIAN GARDENS: THEIR BEAUTY, MEANING AND RELEVANCE TODAY
The great Italian gardens of the Renaissance were created at a pivotal time for Western civilisation, when man’s spirit and intellect successfully attained new heights in all fields of human expression.
The lecture will show how principals of great art were applied to outdoor spaces and how lessons from the past continue to inspire modern gardens.
