    Abstract:
    The city of Lucca was never limited to the urban area within the walls. Autumn and winter would be lived in the city palazzo, with life concentrating upon commercial activities enlivened by entertainments such as music and theatre. In spring and summer life was relocated en masse to the villa. This article outlines the essentials of Lucchese garden design during the Baroque period. It also discusses the role of these gardens in the cultural life of 17th and 18th century Lucca.
