Description
The oldest botanical garden in Italy and the inspiration for most of Rome's famous gardens, the Vatican Gardens first flourished during the Middle Ages and have awed visitors ever since. This sumptuous visual study explores the plants, planters, and architectural structures of the gardens in detail, with hundreds of paintings, engravings, maps, garden plans, naturalist drawings, and color photos, up to 18 1/2 x 12 3/4 inches. Here are such celebrated gardeners as Michele Mercate, who introduced the rarest plants of his time, circa 1570; the polymath Johannes Faber, who directed the garden under five popes; and Donato Branmante, who designed the Cortile del Belvedere courtyard as a vast outdoor room for Pope Julius II.
