Through a selection of 14 gardens, all located in Piedmont, Tuscany, the Riviera, Lazio and Corsica, Pejrone talks about garden landscaping, inspired by the genius loci and respecting the natural flora of the area.
The interest in plants and flora has grown in recent years as shown by the foundation of specialised university faculties. Nowadays in Italy there is a widespread interest in the art of gardening, landscaping and decorating exterior spaces. The books series “Cercatemi in giardino” (You’ll Find Me in the Garden) is aimed at nature and gardening enthusiasts, with medium-sized and competitively-priced books. Paolo Pejrone is without doubt the most famous landscaper in Italy with a broad readership. 170 stunning pictures, accompanied by brief texts which explain the relationship between naturally occurring and cultivated plants, the choice of flowers and plants, and the climactic characteristics and water needs, offering plenty of practical advice.
