Gardens and parks of historical interest: material and non-material values of the natural heritage in
relationship with the landscape
The history and life of a garden joins the history of ideas, the evolution of arts and techniques, from landscaping to gardening, revealing new paths of research and application. In the area of the Northern Lazio, due to the heterogeneous character of the territory, of the environment, and consequently of the landscape, there are gardens and parks from various historical periods, with different characters, where the current relationship with the forest can encourage the investigation on the meaning of naturalism of places. The difficult conservation and maintenance work of such a complex heritage, both park and garden, both private and public, in all its forms, includes the wise and constant care of all its components.
That care can lead to discoveries of new methods of transmission and innovation of the garden-work and can stand for a guarantee of the continuity of the history of the cultural and environmental asset in its wider context.
