Boboli Garden

The garden was originally purchased in 1550 by Eleonora de Toledo, wife of Cosme I de Médicis, from the Pitti family. The design of the garden is by Niccolò Pericoli, known as "il Tribolo." Upon his death, the direction of the work was held by Davide Fortini and later, between 1554 and 1561, by Giorgio Vasari. Ammannati also collaborated in its realization between 1560 and 1583 with the design the courtyard that took his name. The large space called the Amphitheater, semi-elliptical in shape, with which the two wings of Ammannati's courtyard harmonize, was built thanks to the large stone quarry at the foot of Belvedere Hill. By means of this architectural conception, the Pitti Palace and the Bóboli garden merged into a harmonious whole. Later, in 1574, Francis I hired Bernardo Buontalenti as architect, who created the Great Grotto.
