Item description for Venetian Gardens by Mariagrazia Dammicco...

Tucked away in the heart of Venice, hidden from the public eye, lie unexpected oases of calm and beauty. Venetian Gardens offers an exclusive view of the splendor and charm of these secret gardens, undiscovered by the vast majority of visitors to the magical city known as la Serenissima. Whether strolling through the narrow streets or riding on a gondola, most passers-by would miss the rows of trees running alongside ancient city walls, massive climbing vines, flower-covered terraces, and the luxurious gardens of grand palaces. Professional tour guide Mariagrazia Dammicco unlocks Venice's garden gates, allowing us access to hidden oases usually closed to the general public. This book invites the reader to explore twenty of Venice's secret gardens, ranging from private family havens to convent sanctuaries, and including all styles and shapes, contemporary and medieval alike. Marianne Majerus's splendid photography and Dammicco's informative text give the reader a peek behind the closed doors of exclusive residences and quiet convents. This lavish volume is sure to inspire gardeners and lovers of Venice with its spotlight on the unusual and stunning floral combinations that are proven winners in the featured gardens.
Mariagrazia Dammicco is a journalist living in Mestre, near Venice. She is a member of the Club of Historic Gardens of Venice and has collaborated on the guide I Giardini Veniziani. Marianne Majerus lives in London, but she makes frequent trips to her favorite city, Venice. She specializes in garden photography, and she was awarded "Photograph of the Year" in 2002. Her work has appeared in Secret Gardens of London and in House Beautiful Container Gardens.

Reviews - What do customers think about Venetian Gardens?

Gorgeous!  Oct 1, 2007
I'm a huge fan of all things Venetian - art, architecture, gardens & more. Having been to Venice, there are many parts of it that are private or hidden and you'd never find them. This book shows you the most beautiful private gardens overlooking waterways and internal streets that no tourist would ever see or find. I have it sitting on top of my many stacks of coffee table books and each time I walk by and see the cover I want to sit down and look through it again.
Wonderful behind the scenes look  May 13, 2007
This is by far and away the best of books that looks at private Venetian gardens. It covers 27 gardens both historic and contemporary - almost all of them in private hands. Originally published in French, the translation has only a few flaws and is well written with a good deal of both historic and current information. The photographs are really lush and beautiful and the entire publication is beautifully designed and finished. I highly recomend it for lovers of Venice as well as anyone who loves gardening.
