The Gardens of Augustus
The gardens belonged to the villa of Friedrich Alfred Krupp, son of the founder of the German steelworks who residenced in Capri at the end of the last century.
Built on the ruins of ancient Roman structures, the gardens were donated by Krupp to the Town of Capri, which later named them for the Roman emperor. In a corner of the garden, a statue of Lenin by sculptor Manzu was erected to commemorate his stay in Capri.
