The gardens of Augusto are located on the island of Capri in Campania, near the Piazzetta and close to the boardwalk of Via Krupp. They were created in the property of the German industrialist Friedrich Alfred Krupp, who bought the area in the thirties to build his residence on the island; the gardens treasure the principal botanical species of the island. Via Krupp was also created at the behest of the industrialist: his passion for the marine-biological researches led him to sojourn in the Grand Hotel Quisisana and he needed also a road to reach quickly his boat docked in the bay of Marina Piccola. Via Krupp is now a wonderful panoramic road dug in the rocky crag, where it is located the passage to the cave of Fra’ Felice and Marina Piccola. The gardens are a true botanical garden and are structured in terraces facing the sea with a huge variety of plants and flowers from the island’s typical vegetation. The flowerbeds are composed of dahlias, broom trees, geraniums surrounded by pines, junipers, palms and olm oaks; it is possible to admire neoclassical statues and the stele of Lenin (by Giacomo Manzù), since the Russian writer Maksim Gor’kij staid here in 1908, along the visit route.
