Week 1. 5 October: Restoring a former family property in Hungary with Angelica Károlyi
The stately home and park in Fehérvárcsurgó, 50 miles west of Budapest, were originally Baroque, overlaid in the 19th century with an eclectic mix of naturalistic landscape style and a touch of Art Nouveau. Nationalised after World War II, the historic house was at risk of collapse by the late 1980s and the park had become a jungle. This talk will explore how Georges Károlyi - great-great-grandson of Fehérvárcsurgó’s creator - and his Paris-born wife Angelica have restored the former family estate, turning it into a European cultural meeting centre, and have started to restore the park, which since 2005 has hosted an annual European Art of Garden exhibition..."
