Is this the 2-volume book:
Perhaps the 2-volume book was Gli alberi monumentali d Italia (The monumental 
trees of Italy) by Bortlotti et. al., Publisher: Roma: Edizioni Abete, Roma 
1989.  I do not know of an English version but various booksellers have 
copies of the original Italian edition available, e.g.:

Some 20 years or so ago in Rome Mrs Q and I were looking round an historic 
villa and the tourists' shop in the basement had a huge book section.  There 
was a two-volume book in English about Italy's ancient trees.  Vol 1 was not 
in cellophane and looking through it, it was very comprehensive with 
management plans for every tree listed.  They were large books and I thought 
we could separate them in our luggage for the return home, but at £250 I lost 
enthusiasm!   I made a note of the ISBN but managed to lose it.   
Although Ted had been on the warpath for a good many years, this publication 
was a revelation and was very much in advance of the UK at that time.  I gave 
up trying to find it.  
One of my regrets not to buy it.

If I understand the situation you should be able to read this for free 
provided you haven't read something else on their website recently:

 

https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/article/see-the-beautiful-eco
logically-priceless-trees-italy-is-protecting-forever

 

 

and if your Italian is OK or you are prepared to work with Google Docs & 
translate or Google Translate you may be able to get more from:

 

https://www.politicheagricole.it/flex/cm/pages/ServeBLOB.php/L/IT/IDPagina/1
2186 

 

from which you can download a 28 page guide to the criteria used, with some 
nice photographic examples.
