Ninfa Gardens

Prince Gelasio Caetani

Rome, Italy

1920s

An uncharacteristically wild and informal garden restored last century after years of neglect, Ninfa is relatively unknown. Among landscaping enthusiasts it sets a benchmark for atmosphere and character.

Unlike the geometric gardens beloved of the European Baroque, Ninfa's rather organic layout produces an ongoing series of reveals as winding paths emerge beside lakes and ruins. The topography varies as does the density of the planting. The garden's principal strength is its unpredictability. To walk around it is to be constantly surprised, which requires constant re-orientation and adjustment to the changes which bring this magical place to life.
