Storie di ville e giardini
Dimore private nella provincia di Perugia – Vol. 2
This volume, the second of Stories of Villas and Gardens, continues the fascinating journey that began in 2008 to discover the history, the art, the mysteries of the parks and gardens of some of the most spectacular and evocative historic houses in Umbria, skilfully and painstakingly preserved by their respective owners over the centuries. This work, accompanied by suggestive color images, tells the fascinating story of some private residences – Villa Spinola, Villa Faina, Borgo Monticelli, Sant’Angelo in Panzo and the Castle of Porchiano – and some of the prestigious belonging to the Province of Perugia – Parco Ranghiasci Brancaleoni, Villa Fidelia, Villa Redenta and the Castle of Isola Polvese defined as the ‘jewels’ of the institution and previously illustrated in the volume published by the Province of Perugia in 2003.
