No charge for Four Arts members

with Emmanuel Ducamp

Italian gardens owe their origins to many different sources, as far back as Antiquity and the 19th century Romantic landscape. This lecture will start with Roman gardens known to us through refined frescoes from Pompei or Villa di Livia, and will continue with examples from the Middle Ages, concluding with elements of Renaissance gardens, which have been influential throughout Europe.

Emmanuel Ducamp is an art historian and lawyer by training who started his career as a specialist of French Decorative Arts.
