Giardino Buonaccorsi blends beauty and brio - Telegraph

Giardino Buonaccorsi blends beauty and brio - Telegraph | Hideaway Le Marche | Scoop.it
Have you ever been to the Giardino Buonaccorsi, near Ancona, with its magnificent blend of beauty and brio. There was a time when no one on the English and American garden writing circuit had any idea that Buonaccorsi even existed.

Its late-baroque charms lay unappreciated until Georgina Masson gave it a starring role in her 1961 landmark opus, Italian Gardens, calling it ''one of the most fascinating and least known to the outside world of all the gardens in Italy".

"Here," she continued, "time has stood still. It is unique, an 18th-century Italian garden perfect in every detail, right down to the furniture of its grottoes and the stars and diamonds of its original parterres. Since its earliest origins, the place must have been famous for its gardens, for it is called not Villa, but Giardino Buonaccorsi."

Heat Wave Brings Record High Temperatures to Italy This Week | heat wave | ITALY Magazine

Heat Wave Brings Record High Temperatures to Italy This Week | heat wave | ITALY Magazine | Hideaway Le Marche | Scoop.it

For the next ten days, an African heat wave is expected to bring record high temperatures to Italy. Experts predict that the mercury will rise well above 35°C (95°F) in the most affected areas.

Today conditions will reach Level 2, a national meteorological designation for weather that presents health risks, in four cities: Bolzano, Frosinone, Latina and Rome. Level 1 alerts will hit 18 other cities.

Temperatures today will reach 35ºC (95º) in central and southern Italy and 34ºC (93º) in Emilia-Romagna, where 15.000 earthquake victims are living in tents without adequate access to fans or air conditioning.

The peak of the heat wave is forecasted to hit the country on Thursday, bringing temperatures of 40ºC (104ºF) to Puglia, Sicilia, and Abruzzo, and 36ºC (97ºF) to Emilia-Romagna.

The above average temperatures will be accompanied by high humidity as well, making it the perfect time to escape the city and head for Italy’s top 10 beaches or most beautiful parks.
