Francesco Morelli’s vision for the park was to create macro zones with exotic plant species from across the planet mixed into a typically Mediterranean landscape (quercus ilex and pinus halepensis). This resulted in 12 hectares are covered by pinus halepensis, quercus ilex, olea europea var. sylvestris and shrubs of the Mediterranean scrub (pistacia lentiscus, phyllirea angustifolia), with other areas reminiscent of Italian gardens feature native shrubs and fruit trees.
Immersed in this natural landscape are elements of historical and architectural note, several ornamental fountains, and artistic elements. The space features 2100 palm trees from across the world, which play a very important role as architectural elements for the “construction” of certain areas of the park. They belong to 24 different speciesand form a remarkable botanical, cultural and landscape patrimony.
In 1990, the park became a protected area under Articles 136, 137 of Law 42/2004.
