Episode

By the twelfth century, the ancient settlement of Ninfa had become a sizeable town with a castle. The noble Caetani family were granted the fiefdom. But the town's population was  decimated by civil wars in the fourteenth century, then driven out by malaria.

Ninfa lay abandoned until the twentieth century, when three generations of Caetani women - Ada, Marguerite and Lelia - became fascinated with it and made a garden in the ruins of the old town. Wild and cultivated plants twine through the ruins in a riot of colour that somehow achieves a consummate elegance.
