There are five new entries in 2022 that bring the Grandi Giardini Italiani to 147, the network that enhances the most beautiful gardens on the peninsula. These are Villa Montruglio "Pigafetta-Camerini" on the Berici Hills, near Vicenza, Villa Bell'Aspetto in Nettuno (Rome), Villa Rezzola in Lerici, the Garden of the Impossible on the island of Favignana and finally the BAM-Biblioteca degli Alberi. Milan, a botanical garden created as part of the urban redevelopment of the Porta Nuova district.
Judith Wade, who for 25 years has been the soul of Grandi Giardini Italiani, underlines that never before is the time for gardens, for leisure in contact with greenery, surrounded by art and culture, immersed in the beauty that consoles and helps to grow in awareness.
Two years of pandemic have taught us to truly appreciate what we believed to be an Italian heritage that was always available and whose role we understood only when it was denied to us.
«2022 - says Judith Wade - will give the prestigious Italian gardens their definitive consecration as places of pleasure and consolation from daily worries. The gardens will offer food for the spirit of Italians and visitors to our nation for the post-pandemic rebirth ».
