Book Synopsis

Ferruccio Vitale, Landscape Architect of the Country Place Era, details the work of an Italian immigrant to the United States at the turn of the 20th century who managed to make a comfortable living by designing elegant landscapes for wealthy Americans. The book, published last fall, was written by American architect and critic R. Terry Schnadelbach.

Vitale was born to an upper class Florentine family in 1875. His father was an architect and his mother's family had links to the design of the world's first botanical garden, at Padua, in the 16th century. After a promising start as a military officer, Vitale found a new calling in the new discipline of landscape architecture. He emigrated to New York in 1904 and quickly established a good reputation for quality work among an elite clientele.
