Orticolario 2016

Villa Erba, Lago di Como

29 September – 1 October 2016

Officina dei Giardini looks forward to meeting you at Parco 15 of Orticolario, the autumn exhibition of flowers, rare and unusual plants, tools and furniture.

The star of Orticolario 2016 is the Anemone; Pliny the Elder, in his Naturalis Historia, explains how the etymology of the name is related to ánemos : “the flower only opens when the wind blows, and it is this feature that gave the plant its name”.
