Eden Revisited : A Garden in Northern Morocco
by Umberto Pasti and Ngoc Minh Ngo and Martina Mondadori Sartogo




Overview -
A lovingly photographed tour of internationally renowned writer Umberto Pasti's famous hillside garden in Morocco.

Italian writer and horticulturist Umberto Pasti's world-famous garden, Rohuna, is set on a stony hillside high above the ocean south of Tangier. Pasti's passion for the wild flora of Tangier and its surrounding region led him to create Rohuna, where he has transplanted thousands of plants rescued from construction sites with the aid of men from the village.

After decades of painstaking work, Rohuna has become a living museum. Planted between two small houses is the Garden of Consolation: a series of rooms and terraces with lush vegetation, some rendering homage to the paintings of Rousseau le Douanier, others inspired by invented characters. Surrounding the Garden of Consolation are the Wild Garden and a hillside devoted to the wild flowering bulbs of northern Morocco, where indigenous species of narcissus, iris, crocus, scilla, gladiolus, and others bloom. With its stunning vistas and verdant fields, Rohuna is a true arcadia, a garden of incomparable beauty with the mission to preserve the botanical richness of the region. Captured here in detail by celebrated photographer Ngoc Minh Ngo, the poetic beauty of this special and unique place is lovingly rendered for all the world to see and share.
