In 1550, the disgraced Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este consoled himself by building a luxurious villa, which became famous for its aptly named "garden of marvels". Designed by Neapolitan architect Pirro Ligorio, the Villa d'Este (now a UNESCO World Heritage Site) is adorned with magnificent gardens which make full use of water features and statues in the Mannerist style.
