A microcosm from the Renaissance.

Cosmic forces seep through the Rotonda. Equinoxes and solstices enter the building with a light that is always new and the surrounding landscape transforms as the seasons change.

Each month has its own colours, its own light. We encourage you to visit our gardens at different times of the year to take in and be moved by the ever changing atmosphere that surrounds the palladian villa.
