Monumental Garden of Valsanzibio

The beauty of being in the open air immersed
in art, nature and beauty

Walking among trees makes people better.
Plants are food and medicine for the soul.

We are looking forward to have you, we are open every day

Please, pay close attention to our regulation (click HERE to consult the GARDEN REGULATIONS) because this seventeenth-century garden is considered, of its kind, one of the most important artistic monuments in the world, but, like all ancient works of art IT IS VERY DELICATE. In particular, we ask for special cooperation from parents in supervising their youngsters by making them understand that this is not a playground, but an environment that cannot support their normal and, in other circumstances, fine youthful exuberance…PLEASE IS It is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN to throw pebbles or stones into the fishponds/water areas of the garden, pay close attention to your children/teenagers in compliance with the rules…thanks for your kind and indispensable collaboration.

to the many visitors who again this year

have chosen to visit the Valsanzibio Monumental Garden

and in doing so taking part in its preservation.


for the beautiful phrases you have left in the book of dedications.

Knowing that this place is exciting after almost 360 years is a great satisfaction for all the staff, and repays the hard work required to protect a historic and unique asset like this.

2024 will be an important year for the Monumental Garden of Valsanzibio, which won the European Competition dedicated to Historic Gardens and achieved the highest score in all of Italy.

The desire is to bring this baroque destination of almost 360 years old to offer ever higher and international tourist standards.

The greatest efforts so far have been concentrated in the care of the plants, which between drought and parasites attacking the boxwood (a real botanical heritage of the Garden) the work is so much and tiring. If the European aid will actually arrive (the conditional is a must) it will be possible to tackle extraordinary works that will benefit this magical and unique place in the world.

“My grandfather Armando deserves the credit for having repaired the disasters caused by the military occupation and the forced abandonment of the last war (1943-1946). My Father Fabio has the merit of having restored all 33 water points in the Garden compromised by eighty years of progressive impoverishment of the natural springs, with a system that allows 70% of water to be recycled.
To me, in addition to the commitment to continue to pass on this superlative reality to posterity, also the goal of making this pearl of our culture known worldwide. And in a few years great satisfactions have been achieved, with tourists coming from all over the world”
Armando Pizzoni Ardemani, manager of the ‘Tenuta Valsanzibio’.

Preview of the book

un opera scritta da Luigi Cerantola con fotografie di Renato D’Agostin, giovane fotografo veneziano che ha già esposto in prestigiose gallerie d’arte internazionali, tra cui Venezia, New York, Parigi. Alcuni sui scatti realizzati nel Giardino di Valsanzibio appaiono anche sulla facciata dell’antico Casino di caccia denominato Cà Martinengo (clicca sopra per conoscere Ca’ Martinengo).

Da VALSANZIBIO è stato tratto il Codice di Valsanzibio, un libro realizzato secondo tecniche monastiche antiche e composto di 26 grandi pagine (cm. 23,5 x 32) esposte in sequenza. In quest’opera i 24 Sonetti del poeta Luigi Cerantola, che prendono avvio dal Sonetto “Curioso viator che in questa parte” inciso sulla gradinata che dal Giardino di Valsanzibio immette al Piazzale delle Rivelazioni in fronte a Villa Barbarigo Pizzoni Ardemani (clicca La Scalinata del Sonetto), sono calligrafati su carta giapponese e tutte le 26 pagine sono dipinte da Alessio Mancino.

Il codice è in linea alla tradizione classica (vedi le Très Riches Heuresdu Duc de Berry del 1415 circa) che intendeva dar veste solenne e imperitura ad un testo calligrafandolo e miniandolo.
