The Monza Park, part1

With its 685 hectares it is the largest penned park in Europe, with a fourteen kilometre perimetral wall. It is the green lung for Monza and the surrounding territory.

The park, founded in 1805 by Napoleon Bonaparte’s stepson Eugene de Beauhaurnais, viceroy of Italy, was designed by Luigi Canonica, a pupil by the Piermarini who built the neighbouring ‘Villa Reale’.
