Orticolario – Flowers’ fair – Lake Como


Orticolario 2020


This year arrives “Orticolario The Origin”, a virtual edition of Articolario as an expression of the landscape for the landscape’s sake.  Online until next edition>>>

Postponed to October 2022, Orticolario celebrates its 12th edition  in its traditional location: the historic park of Villa Erba in Cernobbio (near Como).

Orticolario is more than a fair: it is an event dedicated to the evolution of gardening as a proposal of  “a new relationship between people and the surrounded environment, it is a new way to experiment a coexistence between love for nature and passion for beauty as a way of life ” says Moritz Mantero, founder and president of Orticolario.

Every year an inspiring theme is chosen that unfolds like a story about nature.
The 2019 theme was “Journey”, The 2020 theme was “Seduction” and the celebrated tree is the the Maple tree.

Even the venue of the fair is particularly attractive: Villa Erba was the home of Luchino Visconti and its ancient park is an ideal setting for Orticolario and its art installations.

At the festival national and international exhibitors display plants and flowers, artistic crafts, art, and design installations. This successful event registered in 2019 more than 30.000 visitors.

During the three days of Orticolario, workshops and educational-creative activities are organized both for adults and children

Orticolario also has an environmental and social vocation: since the first edition, it donates contributions to associations of the territory of Como.

“The garden is a journey … To prepare, to live, to enjoy intensely, step by step … To discover new emotions and regain possession of one’s own time”
