L’horticulture et le jardinage en France et en Italie au XVIe siècle : le cas des manuels de techniques horticoles de Charles Estienne (1536) et des traductions italiennes de Pietro Lauro (1545)

Abstract : Charles Estienne’s treatises De re hortensi libellus (Lyon, 1536) and Seminarium, et plantarum fructiferarum praesertim arborum quae post hortos conseri solent (Paris, 1536), mark the beginning of the Golden Age of gardening in France. In the 1530’s, French gardeners freed themselves from thirty years of Italian technical domination and created their own gardening school, surpassing Italian gardeners in many fields. A comparison of the technical language in Estienne’s treatises and in Pietro Lauro’s translation of them into Italian, reveals France’s superiority—or at the very least, the difference in approaches—in the art of gardening and horticulture.
