Book Synopsis
Hidden Lives / Secret Gardens is a comprehensive history about gardens and human sexuality. Written in an accessible style for the garden enthusiast, the serious landscape designer, art historians and those interested in the lives of international celebrities, the book explores the very roots of Modernism as begun in Florence, Italy in the very first year of the twentieth century.

For the past ten years, R. Terry Schnadelbach, FAAR, Professor Emeritus, Landscape Architecture, University of Florida, has researched the Modernist era in landscape architecture. In Hidden Lives / Secret Gardens, Schnadelbach exposes the engaging and intertwined lives of a group of expatriates, their secluded hillside villas and secret new gardens that will usher a new direction in garden design. This book is the history of three successive new gardens at Villas Gamberaia, La Pietra, and I Tatti and the artists that created them.
