Les Jardins Giusti

The Giusti Garden is one of the finest late Renaissance Italian gardens, and belongs to and is a splendid appendage to the Palazzo Giusti. Begun at the end of the 16th century, the garden was gradually completed and embellished. In this one, writes Vallotto, magnificence competes with nature and its construction must be defined “Italian style” by means of expedients, by juxtapositions with other congeners of Florence, Fiesole, Rome. The Second World War hit this garden hard: the plants, if they were not given away or cut, were terribly mutilated, and it was not taken into account whether they were common or valuable plants. Currently, thanks to the continuous active care given to it, the Garden has regained its pristine beauty.
