Catherine and Ron Anderson are Scott Associates with a passion for travel. This presentation recounts a garden tour of northern Italy’s lake region, which enjoys a mild climate although at the foothills of the alps. We will visit gardens ranging from intimately curated to some designed with Baroque exuberance.
