Pietro Porcinai’s subtle colors

June 17, 2011

As part as an extensive project on XXth century Italian master Pietro Porcinai, I went this week to take pictures of two gardens he designed in the 1950/60 at lake Como. One of them is beautifully maintained and very few things were changed over the years thanks to the family who owns it and to the man who looks after it. It is a very private garden and it seems that only a very few pictures were shown since it was built.

The more I take pictures of Porcinai’s gardens, the more I like the way he was mixing trees and plants with very subtle colors and how light and delicate his gardens look like.
