talian Gardens, the new collection from Bulgari, features over 100 pieces of exquisite High Jewellery inspired by the art of the garden. The great art of Italian gardens burgeoned during the Renaissance, when architects, painters and sculptors of the calibre of Raphael and Michelangelo re-imagined ancient culture channelled through the Humanistic tradition, remodelling the very notion of beauty by exploring a new idea of nature and art. However it was through the gardens of the palaces and villas that the most creative and profound relationship was forged between art and nature: from the Belvedere in the Vatican to Villa dâ€™Este in Tivoli,Villa Lante in Bagnaia and the Boboli Gardens in Florence, the Renaissance architects went beyond the traditional and simplistic imitation of nature. They redefined its contours, gave it form and ultimately transformed it into a work born of man.
