The italian contemporary pergola no.1

A pergola, arbor or arbour is a garden feature forming a shaded walkway, passageway or sitting area of vertical posts or pillars that usually support cross-beams, often upon which woody vines are trained. As a type of gazebo, it may also be an extension of a building, or serve as protection for an open terrace or a link between pavilions. In the past, at the Medici villa, La Petraia, inner and outer curving segments of such green walks, the forerunners of pergolas, give structure to the landscape pattern, which can be viewed from the long terrace above it, and provide rare privacy in a teeming household, offering to those walking within it leafy glimpses into an orderly paradise, a formally-planted enclosed orchard that consciously recalled the Garden of Eden before Adam's Fall. Today, Torofosco proposes a solution of pergola designs simple and elegant: the metal structure is solid and allows the development of dense vegetation. A perfect setting for dining al fresco and enjoy the breeze of the Italian hillside.
