Villa D'Este

Tivoli, Italy

In 1550, after a failed bid for the papacy, Cardinal Ippolito II d’Este was given the governorship of Tivoli. He set about building a villa and gardens for himself that would equal any in Rome. The steep, terraced landscape is filled with grottoes, sculpture, and statuary, but the dominant feature is water, which d’Este’s architects channelled into burbling canals, ponds, and a multitude of fountains.
