WHY CITÈRA

From the book of 1499 “Hypnerotomachia Poliphili” by Francesco Colonna. Citèra is the name of the imaginary island Polifilo reaches with his beloved Polia, after having taken an inner journey, during their dreams, through what could be described as the archetype of the Renaissance garden. We like to think that the garden is the most suitable place to host a journey of the soul.
