Her love for roses started when she was an adolescent and on her many travels she collected the most wonderful roses and picked the most innovative ideas to design her own rose garden back home in the family estate in Rome, Italy.
We have decided to put her notes on-line in the hope that her favorite rose selection and memoirs may inspire you in planning and designing your own beautiful rose garden.
