The Italian Garden
The composer may have been inspired by an Italian thinker associated with Lusławice’s history, but also by his own journey to Italy. Years later, of all the parts of the park he took special delight in this Italian garden. It had required expensive earthworks. Under the supervision of architects and engineers, terraces and stairs were created, based on the gentle natural slope.
Of much importance in Italian Renaissance gardens were the view corridors, symmetrical hedge parterres, and numerous vertical features (in this case, thujas instead of cypresses). The whole is complemented with a small hornbeam maze.
