Historically artists have always been attracted to Tuscany and have chosen this region as their home and workplace because, in addition to its harmonious landscape, Tuscany boasts a very special combination of factors: a mild climate, long history and a rich artistic cultural heritage. Lire la première page

Mariella Sgaravatti visited and interviewed thirty artists who have taken up residence in Tuscany, converted some wonderful old houses, and have created garden spaces for inspiration and reflections. The gardens range from grand to intimate and most incorporate some artwork in the garden itself. Most people know that the majority of artists' studios are places not to inspire anyone but the painter or sculptor, but seeing their homes and gardens is a different matter. While this book will not provide much in the way of artists' lives, it does share some parts of beautiful Tuscany that otherwise might not be available to the traveler. Grady Harp, December 05
It lacked the details I was looking for as a professional landscape designer.
Second, it is neither an DIY nor an Italophile book.
This is a sumptuous book of inspiration for gardens and work. It is the extension to the creative self into the spaces beyond a defined artistic space. Suddenly the garden is bursting with opportunity for expressive recombining of materials to surprise and delight. The images invite you to think of the fallen branches, the rusty hinges, the shoody, eroding bricks in a new way. They then metaphorocally challenge one to throw those drab and safe curb appeal books to the wind, follow your intuition and create your own world within this one.
I adore this book. If it is not next to me when I sleep, it is with me in my studio... within it's own creative carden.
