Hesperios Knit Library Artifact


The Mediterranean cypress is a totem of the Florentine countryside. Perhaps its starring role in the so-called Italian-style garden was nourished first in the garden at Medici Villa at Fiesole. Used to establish the garden as an extension of the villa’s sitting rooms, the narrow erect cypress stood as natural walls and dividers. By virtue of the power of the Medici family as patrons of the arts, and the great appeal of the garden itself, the style has been referenced and reproduced countless times across the world.
