Project by Mario Mariani for Orticolario 2019

The concept

In the garden, between the “exotic” and the colour, among trees, shrubs, perennial and annual herbaceous plants, a clearing opens with 5 entry/exit points.
Coming from the 5 continents, plants are chosen not only among those that most influenced our daily life and the Italian landscape, but also among those with the most garish and unusual colours.
