Italian Garden Design [120]

Italian Garden Design [100]
Illustrated Talk with Carlo Gabriele

‘Remote and distant’ are the first things that come to mind when an Italian thinks about Australia; the distance between Australia and Italy is not only physical, but also cultural due to the different age and history of the two countries.

As a garden and landscape designer who has worked in both countries, Carlo thinks that there are strong similarities between Italy and Australia despite the vast gap that exists: the intensity of light, drought tolerant plants and a culture rich in heritage are just a few fundamental elements that deeply influence the design of a garden.

Analysing classical and contemporary Italian gardens, this lecture explores whether some of the aspects of Italian garden design can be translated and reinvented within Australian gardens and landscapes.
