Synopsis

In the Roman countryside, the most poetic of English gardensAn object of devotion for connoisseurs worldwide, the Garden of Ninfa was created on a unique backdrop: the ruins of a medieval city in the vicinity of Latina, a site of poetic beauty where time stood still. These books tell the story of the creation of the garden by the Caetani family and describe it as it appears today: the leading role of the ultra-pure springs of Sermoneta, the variety of botanical species, the evocative interaction with the ruins, and the virtuous layout of bodies of water, plants, buildings, and architectural remains.
