    Italian Garden Design

    Learn about Italian garden design in this illustrated talk with Carlo Gabriele, presented by the Friends of the RBG Melbourne. '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.
