San Giuseppe, Spello, Umbria
On the plain below the lovely Umbrian hill town of Spello, this former silkworm factory is now the headquarters of the Editoriale Campi publishing house. Campi’s Almanacco di Barbanera (www.barbanera.it) – an annual handbook, originally for farmers but nowadays a fount of folk-wisdom for all – celebrated its 250th anniversary in 2012. To mark the anniversary, a garden reflecting the simple, productive spirit of Barbanera was created.
