HISTORY
The love of beauty

The garden of the Biasi home 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, over the past decades, in the realization of the garden has been the desire to create something beautiful by serving the botanical world well known and intensely loved.

The present garden occupies a part of the ancient brolo of Villa Boldieri – Trentini and was laid out beginning in March 1977 by Mario and Luciana Biasi on the site where vineyards stood, whose alleged low productivity had justified their elimination, allowing them to give free rein to their imagination.

The continuous evolution

Since then work has not ceased, and Cecilia and Nico have continued with passion in the work of realizing and completing the original project, bringing it to its present state.
The relationship of the spaces with the villa, the characteristics of the terrain, the exposure, and the evolution of taste have actually contributed to the birth of two entities: the romantic park and the Mediterranean garden.

The former has the physiognomy of nineteenth-century parks, centered on the ancient staircase that descends from the passing hall to the main floor of the villa: there are large specimens of linden trees, cedars of Lebanon, plane trees, and maples under which is a succession of blooms of hellebores, camellias, irises, cyclamens, anemones, hydrangeas, hoste… to which is surrounded by the discreet proximity of ferns and herbaceous perennials that flaunt all shades of green.
The Mediterranean garden extends to the east of the romantic park; it is laid out in terraces due to the steep slope of the land, which is arid and gravelly due to the centuries-old overflowing of the Pesina stream, which laps it on the east side and was only equipped with embankments 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 shrubs, jasmine, palms, ancient and modern roses, peonies, and anemones variously distributed along the terraces and arranged to delimit large spaces or small gardens.
