A tribute to the beauty of the famed Italian gardens of Isola Bella and Isola Madre, two precious jewels of Italy’s Lake Maggiore.
 
The islands of Isola Bella and Isola Madre have belonged to the Borromeo family since the sixteenth century. From the very beginning, this noble Italian family aimed to transform these fishing islands into small earthly paradises boasting lush gardens. 
 
With stunning photography and informative texts, this book explores the enchanting scenery of both islands. Named after Countess Isabella Borromeo, Isola Bella is an attractive terraced pyramid of formal gardens with baroque scenery of monumental stairs, statue-topped balustrades, and obelisks. Isola Madre, the largest of the lake islands, has a beautiful Renaissance palace surrounded by a botanical garden, famous for its variety of flowers and plants due to the mild climate. The exquisite flora includes azaleas, rhododendrons, magnolias, ancient camellias, water lilies, lotus flowers, and Mediterranean citrus plants.
 
So magical that they even once fascinated the French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, the Borromeo Gardens are breathtakingly represented in this lavishly illustrated tome.

Photographs of exquisite flora: including azaleas, rhododendrons, magnolias, ancient camellias, waterlilies, lotus flowers and different Mediterranean citrus.

The location: one of the most romantic places in Italy, Lake Maggiore receives almost 3 million visitors a year and is a popular site for lavish, VIP weddings.

Famous family: The Borromeo family is one of the most famous families in Italy; one of the nieces is married to a son of Princess Caroline of Monaco.

Previously unpublished photography: photographer Dario Fusaro shot the photos exclusively for this book.
