The Torrigiani Garden in Florence
Hidden in the heart of Florence is the garden Torrigiani whose nearly seven hectares is the largest private garden in Europe within the circle of the walls of a city.
The Torrigiani family gave the assignment to design the garden first to Luigi de Cambray Digny (author of the Cenotaph of Dante in Santa Croce Church) and later to Gaetano Baccani. Behind its gates lie 6 acres of rare beauty, ranging to compose an extraordinary private park, certainly one of the finest examples of romantic garden.
The current entrance on via del Campuccio introduces a large space marked by a large circular flowerbed with the quadripartite, the great classical group, designed by Pio Fedi, who represents Seneca with young Pietro Torrigiani. Among the many alleys, small hills and large lawns you can admire many original architectural structures of great interest like the Hermitage, the Gymnasium, the Aviary and the bed of the river Ladon in the adjoining bridge.
