Maria Litta Medri, director of the Boboli Gardens and author of different studies on the Gardens, offers in this guide a journey through the artificial grottoes that characterize the park of the Fiorentino Palace. The four grottoes were built in a period from the 16th century up to beginnings of the 19th century. Even though they are thought and realized in so many epoches, they all have the common denominator of a unique and unrepeatable magic, of a sensation of fresh and changeable mystery magic that characterizes those very particular architectures. Wellknown artists worked, in order to plan and decorate them, and there they collect works of art of extraordinary value, like the mighty Prisoners of Michelangelo or the innocent Venus of Giambologna.
