Black Moon is a garden to be enjoyed particularly at night time. The series of luminous pilasters—enormous candles almost two metres tall, produced in close collaboration with the Cerabella company—are the unifying element that illuminates and characterises the garden.

    The paving, the benches on which to rest and admire the Ophiopogon japonicus, and the plants themselves, are the colour of the night, and it is the night itself that is the star of the show.
