The Castle Garden

Our woven structures in the medieval garden of Palazzo Madama in Turin.

I had the good fortune to be able to help create the garden features at Palazzo Madama in Turin, making edging hurdles to surround the rectangular beds of the kitchen garden and benches to be placed round the trees.

The garden was reconstructed on the basis of fifteenth century documents and references from medieval sources. The scents, the colours and the peace which pervade this medieval corner in the centre of Turin make walking through the “jardinum domini”, “hortus” and the “vindarium” a unique experience.
