Gardening; Gardens (descriptions, history etc)
The remarkable story of the project undertaken by Paul Bangay and Monash University to transform a neglected car park at the university's Prato campus in Tuscany into a traditional Renassance walled garden, befitting its location. The Italian Garden is part restoration story, part vicarious travel tale and a completely facinating story of how the discovery fifty years ago of a series of neglected and hidden fifteenth century frescos led to the creation of the stunning Palazzo Vaj garden, inspired by the water features, grottos and planting symmetry of classic Italian Renaissance gardens.
