Garden stone fountains? Must have!

The stone fountains in a self-respecting garden cannot be missed. It is not a garden without a stone fountain. We are Italian: we have the garden in our blood. Our story speaks for itself: the Italian garden (which has also taken on the name of “formal garden”) has been for a long time. A “must have” of noble families from the fifteenth century. It was called “formal” because it was geometric, in some cases even labyrinthine; “Italian” – as opposed to “English” or “French”. As it is rich in the variety of plants and shrubs and vegetation in general typical of the Belpaese. It was a rich, very rich, almost baroque garden. Because, of course, the richer the garden was, the more the hosts were. An opportunity for pomp, bordering on exhibitionism, that the gentlemen of the time could not miss. And in fact they didn’t, they exhibited the most beautiful stone fountains of the time.

Garden stone fountains: equal only to itself.

Furthermore, a further element to consider when choosing to buy a “stone made” fountain is the fact that it is a unique piece and never reproducible to perfection. Since it is made of a natural material which is the mirror of its own history. Knowing that you have a unique piece in the world in your home, with veins and shades that suggest unrepeatable experiences that are lost back in time, is a value that is anything but negligible.
The stone fountains have no age. Also, the stone is forever. Whatever latitude you live, the stone resists. It resists the cold of the most merciless mountains in the North or under the rays of the hottest sun, in the South of all the South. And, like all masonry artifacts, even the small fountains survive the elements, often passing from generation to generation, as is done with family jewels, and thus constituting a precious gift that binds to always between them parents to children, children to grandchildren.
