Villa Strohl Fern at night
April 8, 2011
Yesterday evening was beautiful, warm, no wind. Being alone at night in this enormous garden in the center of Rome is a beautiful experience, even a bit scary. I thought about the words of Rilke about Villa Strohl Fern: “…lost deep in a large park, hidden from the city, from its noises and incidents”. I wished to photograph another side of the garden, the very mysterious head which lies in the ground near the house where Baron Strohl was living, the cement tree designed by an artist, at the early XXth century, in the middle of real ones.
