Villa Erba, Lago di Como

29 September – 1 October 2017

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”.
