Orticolario – Flowers’ fair – Lake Como
From October Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th 2020, a special event dedicated to plants, flowers, and gardening
From October Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th, 2020, 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 is “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 Orticolario 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”
