The International Carlo Scarpa Prize for Gardens 2018

This year the Scientific Committee of the Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche dedicates the International Carlo Scarpa Prize for Gardens to an impressive and historically significant site in Ireland: the Céide Fields site near Ballycastle, a small village on the north coast of County Mayo.

The Céide Fields site consists of a Neolithic agricultural landscape with a geometric pattern of man-made structures. The place is characterized by an interplay of landscape, archaeology and human activities.

The International Carlo Scarpa Prize for Gardens is a study and care campaign for a place that is particularly rich in natural, historical and creative values. Since 1990, the Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche has organized the event annually.
