"...this collection of essays constitutes a welcome contribution to the fields of garden history and Italian studies. If one sign of good scholarship is that it both answers questions and opens doors to new ones, this collection is an outstanding example. It piques the reader's interest, provides glimpses into landscapes heretofore neglected and suggests new pathways for research and discovery." Dianne Harris, Journal of the Society of Architectural History "The Italian Garden is a beneficial addition to the list of books about Italy and its protracted garden tradition." Philip Pregill, Landscape Journal
