A Mural At The Giardino Giusti Gardens
A mural at the entrance to The Giardino Giusti Gardens in Verona. The gardens are one of the finest Renaissance gardens in Europe and were planted in 1580. They are amed after the noble family that has tended them since opening them to the public in 1591. The vegetation is an Italianate mix of the manicured and natural, graced by soaring cypresses, one of which the German poet Goethe immortalised in his travel writings.
