Orticolario – Flowers’ fair – Lake Como
From October Friday 4th to Sunday 6th a special event dedicated to plants, flowers, and gardening
Orticolario, in 2019 at its 11th edition 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, 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.
This year Orticolario takes place from October Friday 4th to Sunday 6th, 2019, in its traditional location: the historic park of Villa Erba in Cernobbio (near Como).
Every year an inspiring theme is chosen that unfolds like a story about nature. The 2019 theme is the “Journey“, and the main plants are Berries and Small Fruits.
Even the place 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.
More than 200 selected national and international exhibitors display plants and flowers, artistic crafts, art, and design installations. This successful event registered in 2018 more than 28.000 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”
