On June 8th, 9th and 10th Villa Caprile in Pesaro organizes the 11th edition of Agrishow – a 3-day long event within Pesaro “Happyness Festival”.
The beautiful villa, with an Italian garden, was built in 1640 by the marquis Giovanni Mosca from Bergamo and hosted, later on, famous guests such as Casanova, Stendhal, Rossini and Leopardi.
The 17th century façade is a perfect scenary for the garden, rich in exotic plants and water games. The gardens, along the gentle slope, are arranged in three terraces connected by large staircases.
The first one, with a double flight of stairs, is the oldest. It leads to the first garden hosting the famous water games which take the visitors aback with sudden splashes of water coming out from vases, monuments and hedges. A 2 km-long filtering gallery was built at that time in order to receive the waters.
The second garden hosts the so-called pomario with fruit trees and plants, according to the Arab gardening tradition, typical in the Spanish culture. The third garden hosts the viridarium, with aromatic herbs such as sage, rosemary, juniper, tyme, etc.
To top it all the green theatre (“teatro di verzura”) surrounded by cypresses and entirely made of plants and trees, including stage and seats.
Villa Caprile today is the seat of the agrarian technical institute. Its beautiful gardens with water games are open to the public every day, starting from June 15th until September 15th (3 PM – 7 PM). For information and group reservations call +39 721 21440.
