Course Description

Starting with ancient Rome, the country villas and gardens have been a benchmark of status and refinement. We will trace the development of the villa and their gardens, through history and regions throughout Italy, understanding the development as a worldwide statement of Western Civilization refinement. Why are the Gardens of France in the form that they are? Because of the model set in Italy over the centuries. Why do the great English country houses of the 17th and 18th centuries, all look like Palladian Villas of northern Italy? We will learn and understand how this came about. Enjoy this brief tour and study of Italian style and form, as it has affected the world.
