Description du produit

Revue de presse

In this well-researched, beautiful and engaging book, Mr Quest-Ritson lays out all the wonders of Ninfa… Anyone with a true interest in gardening will find much to interest them in this book, which celebrates Ninfa in all its seasons, colours and shades. So, too, will anybody with an interest in the romance of ruins or the philosophy of active conservation of landscape and beauty. --Country Life

Aided by lovely photographs, many his own, Quest-Ritson describes, in words as translucent as the waters which flow through the site, the process of Ninfa's creation and the way its harmony is kept in balance. --Historic Gardens Review

I agree with the idea that Ninfa, just south of Rome, is probably "the most romantic garden on earth", and that is the proposal of Charles Quest-Ritson, who has been connected with the garden for many years. Ninfa is the garden's beautifully illustrated biography. --The Times<br /><br />Ritson's book amplifies what has hithertoe passed as Ninfa's garden history and is essential reading for anyone with an interest in great landscape and the ways in which a garden of genius evolves in a family. --Financial Times - Robin Lane Fox

Présentation de l'éditeur

The garden at Ninfa has a unique setting: the ruins of a medieval town near Rome. The site is one of sublime romantic beauty, where time seems to stand still. The garden has achieved cult status among the English and American gardening cognoscenti. An iconic garden in Italy too, Ninfa is the only one to appear on an Italian postage stamp. In this book, Charles Quest-Ritson draws upon his intimate knowledge of the garden and describes the events that led to the sacking of the town in 1381, after which its ruins lay entombed beneath the thickest ivy for centuries; its rediscovery 100 years ago by the Caetani family and its restoration in the 1920s by Prince Gelasio Caetani who created the garden's present structure.
