The villa, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2013, was designed by Giuliano da Sangallo for Lorenzo il Magnifico and is an example of Renaissance architecture that combines classical elements with those of rural Tuscan architecture. The lesson of Leon Battista Alberti is obvious, both in the choice of the villa's location and in the search for symmetry and harmony in its proportions. Cosimo I entrusted Tribolo and Davide Fortini with the construction of the garden.
