The Temple in the Landscape – A conference on Italy & the English Landscape Garden
Event date: 20/09/2017
The English Landscape Garden is, by definition, English. However, it owes much to the Italian landscape and culture.
Join us to study several of these elements and influences, considering Italy at periods ranging from classical to Renaissance and 18th century.
Offering lectures from leading experts in the field, this informative conference is set to provide an extra dimension to thinking about, and responding to, the rich tapestry of the British landscape garden.
