Mantero Seta and “Lo stilista Giardiniere”

Serra Platani, Lario Wing

The life of Ken Scott was a wonderful, cheerful and ironic journey through flowers and colours. From the United States, through Guatemala, Mexico, Paris, the French Riviera, to Milan and around the world, as a free spirit and innovator he affected and seduced people of all kinds, communicating joy of life and happiness with his creations.

A strong personality that brought a celebration of colour to the world of fashion and beyond: gaudy and vivid flowers were his inspiration … gardens his passion.

Thus at Orticolario, in Serra Platani, a lush tropical forest with philodendrons, strelitzias, ferns and so on, will welcome the drawings of the “gardener stylist” with a series of limited edition headscarves, interpreted and created by Mantero Seta*.

Barbara Negretti Garden Designer signs the project of a space which will take us to the colourful and flamboyant universe of a visionary artist and precursor of a world in which the colours of nature enhance the beauty of women and life.

* headscarves are for sale inside the space
