The Monumental Trees of Italy

Gli Alberi Monumentali d'Italia

Have you seen this book?

Gli Alberi Monumentali d'Italia

Many years ago, I found this book while browsing the clearance stacks at a used bookstore in Washington, DC.

Published in 1990, Gli Alberi Monumentali d’Italia is a beautiful coffee table book full of color photos of legendary trees from Italy’s islands and central/southern regions. Roman pines, Holm oaks, olive, cypress, sycamore, lime, beech, poplar, carob, and other trees from Sardinia, Sicily, Calabria, Basilicata, Puglia, Campania, Molise, Abruzzo, Lazio, and the Marches are given biographical treatment with descriptions in Italian and English.

The curious thing about this book is that the spine has a “I” indicating that there are other volumes. But I’ve never been able to find volume II or even an online reference to it.

If you have a tip on where I can find a copy of other books in this series, let me know in the comments below.

UPDATE: I found Volume II! This is a really beautiful set.
