Villa di Castello, near the city of Florence, was acquired in 1477 by the Medici family. Its garden is considered the prototype for the Italian Renaissance garden in which water, plants and mineral elements blend harmoniously in fountains, grottoes and topiaries. This essay focuses on the original project introduced in 1538 by the architect Niccolò Tribolo, showing preparatory drawings and models and focusing on the innovative elements of the design plan.
