Gardens

The park surrounding the Palace was created by Count Sigismondo Freschi at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Many of the original plants can still be seen today.

The park surrounding the Palace was created by Count Sigismondo Freschi at the beginning of the nineteenth century. He reinterpreted the existing medieval elements to include them in a park inspired by principles of landscape design; thanks to his vision, many of the original plants can still be seen today.

The park gives the viewer a sense of vastness: walking even a short distance through its many paths, one finds constantly changing views of the garden.

In Sigismondo’s original plan, the garden was divided into twelve rooms separated by lines of box trees. Nowadays, a higher number of rooms and smaller gardens can be found even in areas of the park that at the time of the Count were used for agriculture or where animals were allowed to roam.
