Postponed: Talk | An evening with Luciano Giubbilei

Please note this event has been postponed, new date TBA soon.

We are delighted to welcome renowned garden designer Luciano Giubbilei back to the Garden Museum to talk about his recent projects, including having his work featured in The Art of the Garden, airing on Sky Arts in May.

Twenty-five years after starting life as a garden designer, Luciano Giubbilei has finally created a garden in the country in which he was born. Having been brought up in the walled city of Siena, he jumped at the chance to create a stunning garden around a villa whose views are of a Tuscan landscape unchanged for centuries.

    Luciano Giubbilei

    Luciano Giubbilei began his career in gardens when he moved from his birthplace, Siena, to London in 1994. By 1997, he had completed his studies at the Inchbald School of Design and established his own practice. This practice has evolved with a defining emphasis on exploring and nurturing a sustained dialogue with artists, architects, plantsmen and craftsmen. It is this commitment to collaboration that Giubbilei believes is key to expanding and challenging the creative process, moving the practice from the limitations of a familiar language.

    Giubbilei began working on his experimental border at Great Dixter in 2012, encouraging an exploration of planting possibilities that has led the studio towards larger landscape projects in Europe and the US, including substantial commissions in Tuscany, on the Balearic island of Formentera and in Dallas, Texas.

    In 2014 Giubbilei was awarded Best Show Garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and the following year was invited by the Yorkshire Sculpture Park to collaborate on an exhibition of the work of the American sculptor Ursula von Rydinsgvard at the Venice Art Biennale. In 2016 he received Siena’s Premio Mangia, given to those who have 'achieved a clear international reputation through their work' and, in so doing, have represented Siena on the world stage.
    Previous publications include ‘The Art of Making Gardens’ (2016) and ‘The Gardens of Luciano Giubbilei’ (2010), both published by Merrell.
