Design within the Garden



Garden, outside Villa Antica 

Sofia, from Greek Σοϕία, wisdom and knowledge.

A huge cor-ten iron turtle occupies the space, a decoration element perfect for a garden, a park or a square, designed and projected by Francesco Mazzola . Its shell completely covered in a carpet of Ophiopogon japonicus ‘Nana’, ground – covering plant that blooms during Springtime and shows small white flowers, witch become cobalt blue berries.

“Sofia” lets us sit on its legs to observe what surround us, awaking and listening our Sixth Sense.

“Musicalia”. Ph. Vittorio Peretto


Garden, Lakefront pathway

A musical and poetic note brings a breath of life inside a garden or a terrace.
A simple and effective way to create our own Space spreading harmony and beauty.

Vittorio Peretto draws inspiration by these concepts to design and collect objects and décor, influenced by the Music, together with skilled Craftsmen, in order to instil new energy inside gardens.

From a decisive collaboration along with Francesco Mazzola and Vittorio Peretto, “Musicalia” was born: a complete collection of garden decor, presenting itself within an installation in Villa Erba Garden, facing the lake and among harps, violins, notes
New ideas, new models, new melodies.
