A large private garden surrounded by a dense forest of oak trees on the mountains of Molise. The very steep terrain and the severe under-representation within the plant causing severe phenomena of surface runoff and leaching of soil. The solution to this problem has provided an opportunity to introduce formal elements of the garden also “strong” that distinguishes the site recontextualizing the landscape. Paths in the trenches bounded by walls of local stone cut in the surface area with the double purpose of disposing of storm water and allow to reach the different corners of the park. The forest surrounding the area regains invading margins, creating gray areas where the undergrowth can grow spontaneously.
