Love of beauty
The garden of the Biasi house is the tangible expression of a passion for plants and flowers understood as a love of beauty: in fact, what has animated the creativity of the family members who have ventured and succeeded one another over the past decades in creating the garden has been the desire to create something beautiful using the well-known and intensely loved botanical world.
The present garden occupies a part of the old brolo of Villa Boldieri – Trentini and was laid out in March 1977 by Mario and Luciana Biasi on the site of vineyards, whose presumed low productivity had justified their elimination, giving free rein to the imagination.
Work has not ceased since then, and Cecilia and Nico have continued with passion in the realisation and completion of the original project, bringing it to its current state.
The relationship of the spaces with the villa, the characteristics of the terrain, the exposure, and the evolution of taste have contributed to the birth of two entities: the romantic park and the Mediterranean garden.
The former has the physiognomy of nineteenth-century parks, centred on the ancient staircase that descends from the hall to the main floor of the villa: There are large specimens of lime trees, cedars of Lebanon, plane trees, maples, under which is a succession of flowering hellebores, camellias, irises, cyclamens, anemones, hydrangeas, hosteas… surrounded by the discreet proximity of ferns and herbaceous perennials that display all the shades of green.
The Mediterranean garden extends to the east of the romantic park. It is laid out in terraces due to the steeply sloping terrain, which is arid and gravelly due to the centuries-old overflowing of the Pesina stream, which laps against it on the eastern side and was only equipped with banks during the 1700s.
In the highest part, a small olive grove has been preserved, whose silvery foliage then gives way to cypresses, oleanders, citrus trees, flowering bushes, jasmine, palms, ancient and modern roses, peonies, and anemones, variously distributed along the terraces and arranged to delimit large spaces or small gardens.
