The Official Guide
Designed by Niccolò Pericoli, known as "il Tribolo", the garden complex of Boboli is one of the most outstanding examples of Italian Renaissance landscaping. The succession of its breathtaking views, unfolding through the architecturally orchestrated display of rare and unique botanical treasures, are further heightened by the many art masterpieces strategically placed along the way, such as Buontalenti's Grotto, Giambologna's Ocean Fountain, the Amphitheatre and the colossal statue of Plenty.
Litta Medri is the Director of the Boboli Gardens. Giorgio Galletti is the director of Villas, Parks and Garden's Office.
The volumes published in the Firenze Musei series are the official guides for the Florence museums: a completely new aide guaranteed to help the visitor. They have been conceived in cooperation between the publisher, the Fine Arts and Historic Works Service and the directors of the museums. Each guide provides a rich resource of colour illustrations and a host of useful details compiled by the best specialists in each sector. The Firenze Musei Guides, therefore, contain the most up-to-date and reliable information one could wish for when visiting the city's art collections.
