Carducci Gardens

Adjacent to the Palazzo della Provincia and the Brufani Hotel in Piazza Italia

The green breath of the XIX City

Garden with a view point on one of the most fascinating panorama of Perugia, with a view on the city and the valleys and mountains closing the horizon.

Enriched by the monument of Pietro Vannucci, known as Perugino, and busts of illustrious men, the gardens are dedicated to the poet Giosuè Carducci, who rendered them immortal in his ode “Canto all’amore”, written during his stay in Perugia in 1877.

The bronze statue of Perugino is by Enrico Quattrini and was opened on 1923, for the fourthudred anniversary of the death of the painter. It is one sample of Liberty Style in Perugia, to be particularly seen on the base with flora decoration and the inspiring angel.

Each last Sunday of the month, the trade fair of Antique and collectors of Perugia takes place here and in July it hosts a session of Umbria Jazz.
