27th March 2015
Students in Year 3 and 4 visited Rome's Villa Borghese on March 25th. Two guides from Safari d’Arte took the students on a treasure hunt around the magnificent gardens and told numerous stories behind the amazing statues.
These included Diana’s temple, the seahorse fountain, a sphinx, Medusa, a dragon, a cow, Umberto I on his horse and a donkey.
Students discovered that Cardinal Scipione Borghese created the gardens in about 1605 and what was unique was that he wanted the gardens to be open to everyone.
