The eighth edition of Orticolario in Villa Erba on September 30th, October 1st and 2nd.
Orticolario is an autumnal exhibition of flowers, rare, unusual and collector’s plants, tools and furniture that, even on occasion of its eighth edition, promotes an international competition for the realization of theme gardens and artistic-landscape installations in the park of Villa Erba.
The exhibition dedicated to the passion for the garden, this year at its eighth edition, will be dedicated to the sixth sense and to the anemone, the windflower (flower profile).
In the park of Villa Erba you will be able to admire the gardens and the installations selected through the 2016 Creative Spaces International Competition, which, assessed by an international jury, compete for “The Golden Leaf of Lake Como” prize, conceived and realized by Gino Seguso, of the Archimede Seguso Artistic Glassware Shop.
There will also be the Popular Jury Prize, voted by the visitors of Orticolario.
As for the previous years, Orticolario 2016 schedules an extensive programme of events: meetings, discussions, experiments, activities, books presentations, demonstrations of flower and botanical compositions, children workshops…
To better organize your visit to Orticolario 2016 you can check the general programme, the exhibitors catalogue and the complete map of the event.
The aim of Orticolario is also to donate the net proceeds derived from the exhibition to charitable associations in the Lake Como area.
