Rizzoli, in collaboration with the University of Padua, publishes Hortus Mirabilis, narrating the magic of Padua's Orto Botanico and illustrating its artistic and architectural beauty, coupled with the wonders of beautiful, exceedingly rare, exotic, old and medicinal plants.

This book focuses on the many features of what is home to one of the world’s most comprehensive herbariums, one of the oldest and most original algae collections and a library containing thousands of precious volumes.
The all-new photography follows the flowering times of each species and is accompanied by texts full of anecdotes of traditional, scientific and popular interest, with forays into the history of the Italian Renaissance and the Republic of Venice. Completing the book is a dictionary raisonné of botany and a colouring book with illustrations drawn from the photographs.
