Bagni di Lucca

Its structure is an example of eclectic taste, present in 20th century construction. The spreading of industrialisation had reduced necessary building costs. New techniques and materials were used on buildings which were, at the same time, inspired by different significant moments in the history of architecture. It would seem as though they were trying to bring together in the new building, all the beautiful and important architectural accomplishments achieved over the course of time. In villa Fiori you will find a range of Neo Romanesque to Neo Gothic openings alongside each other as well as references to neo-classic forms. A Loggia surmounts the lateral avant-corp of the edifice. The floors of the building are scanned with cornices. The main element to the garden’s architectural structure is its relationship with the stream, which marks the park’s borders where it bends.
From the curious statues of bathers, the number of exotic plants, the imitation medieval towers, it can be clearly seen that the garden was created as a place for relaxation and fantastic evasion in time and space.
