Garzoni Garden: the green monument inside the Collodi Park
The Historic Garzoni Garden is the result of two centuries of work . Begun in the sixteenth century, from the transformation of a vegetable garden and a hunting grove alongside the country residence of the Counts Garzoni, it took shape in the eighteenth century in a green monument among the most fascinating and evocative of Tuscany . The whole garden, with its symbols and white figures that stand out among the green or hide in it, appears as a narrative, sometimes enigmatic, aimed at the visitor. Admire the variety of crops, water features, waterfalls and fountains, the fresh paths that from Scala d’Acqua will take you to picturesque corners such as the Labyrinth , the Verzura Theater , the Viale dei Poveri flanked by picturesque figures.
The Garzoni Garden is one with the Villa that joins it. In ancient times it was a fortress guarding the village of Castello , then it became country house of the noble Garzoni , finally a luxurious complex of villa and monumental garden. The steep hill, which seemed to hinder the creation of a large and prestigious garden, became a scene of amazing greenery and water, while even the large house was turning into an imposing and luxurious villa, which hides the fresh < strong> Palazzina d’Estate and a chapel.
