Orticolario is an homage to nature through an evolved conception and understanding of the garden. Nurtured by the fascination for flowers and their gentle charm, it takes you on a sensory path of colours and scents, against the backdrop of beautiful Lake Como.
Motivated by a passion for gardening and a love for nature, a group of friends in Como decided to promote this initiative with the help of the historic “Società Ortofloricola Comense” society and the “Distretto Florovivaistico Altro Lombardo”.
The historic setting of the prestigious Villa Erba with its gardens overlooking Lake Como brings back the tradition of Como Villas as an important and exclusive location of botanical exhibition. At the same time, the Villa offers visitors an incredible natural background to explore the themes of culture, enhancement of landscape, botany and biodiversity.
