Scope and Content

The sub-series documents the exhibition "Giardini Parchi Paesaggi. L’avventura delle idee in Toscana dall’Ottocento a oggi", curated by Pettena and presented at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, in 1998. The exhibition focuses on landscape architecture and its historical development by using the example of Tuscany from the 19th century to present day. "This set out to illustrate a historical course of development that also entailed the consideration and reevaluation [sic] of the landscape that results from human activity [...] and extended as far as an analysis and presentation of the most modern theme parks of sculpture and environmental art." [1]

The sub-series contains research material, such as photocopies of articles and books on landscape architecture, and reference photographs. The sub-series also contains texts for the publication and correspondence related to the planning of the exhibition.
