“The Gardens of Bomarzo is Clorinde’s latest conceptual double album. It consists of 22 songs each one inspired by a particular statue or monument of the unique and grotesque Italian Renaissance garden of Bomarzo built in the sixteenth century and commissioned by an extravagant Italian duke. The garden provides a philosophical journey through subjects such as love, death, memory and truth, ancient myths and allegories. “Upon our first visit 3 years ago we immediately felt inspired by this magical and obscure place and as soon as we were back in London we began to work constantly on creating music reminiscent of what we had experienced in Bomarzo.””
