The Park of the Villa Pallavicini is a surprising, beautiful outdoor “theatre”, where visitors simultaneously become the spectators and actors of a romantic story.
A vast garden over the steep hill of Pegli, it was conceived at the same time as a drama piece, developed in three acts with a prologue and an exodus. Every act has four scenes, composed of architecture, furniture, streams, fountains, ponds, and exotic or indigenous plants chosen for their compositional and evocative characteristics.
Nothing is left to chance: visitors walk through serene and luminous environments, as well as shadowy and disquieting areas, from neoclassical scenes to medieval or exotic settings, experiencing the story created by Canzio, which replays each time for visitors.
The plot revolves around the journey of man during his lifetime; a journey of personal growth that leads him to investigate the relationship with his soul and “see” the wonders of the world.
