In a careful historical reconstruction, the author takes us through the flowery avenues of Boboli Gardens to search the surviving testimonies of the primitive design of the extraordinary park of the Medici palace. During this research we will meet the very particular Mostaccini Fountain, whose sequence of small waterfalls constitutes a seventeenth-century exceptional testimony of the ancient drinking troughs for birds, which were used in the practice of fowling.
Similarly we will cross cerchiate and ragnaie, what that remains of the old green architectures of the garden, and we will end our way search for the remains of the monumental, geometrical labyrinths, whose use and conception were, at that time, full of mythic and allegorical meanings.
