It is the work of Pier Francesco Orsini , called Vicino , a 16th-century condottiero , and patron of the arts, greatly devoted to his wife Giulia Farnese not to be confused with her maternal grandmother Giulia Farnese , the mistress of Pope Alexander VI. When Orsini's wife died, he created the gardens to cope with his grief. The design is attributed to Pirro Ligorio , and the sculptures to Simone Moschino.

The park of Bomarzo was intended not to please, but to astonish, and like many Mannerist works of art, its symbolism is arcane: examples are a large sculpture of one of Hannibal 's war elephants , which mangles a Roman legionary , or the statue of Ceres lounging on the bare ground, with a vase of verdure perched on her head. The many monstrous statues appear to be unconnected to any rational plan, and appear to have been strewn almost randomly about the area, sol per sfogare il Core "just to set the heart free" as one inscription in the obelisks says.

Allusive verses in Italian by Annibal Caro the first one is of him, in , Bitussi, and Cristoforo Madruzzo , some of them now eroded, were inscribed beside the sculptures. The reason for the layout and design of the garden is largely unknown; Liane Lefaivre thinks they are illustrations of the romance novel Hypnertomachia Poliphili . Perhaps they were meant as a foil to the perfect symmetry and layout of the great Renaissance gardens nearby at Villa Farnese , and Villa Lante.
