Cervia Garden City

Cervia Garden City

48th edition. Europe’s largest floral outdoor art display. The green heart of the city keeps on beating The gardens shine with the colors of the Rainbow, symbol of rebirth and hope.

Cervia Garden City"Cervia takes you to the sea along its many gardens reminding of towns and cities far away”, so Tonino Guerra masterfully summed up the significance of the event.

The largest open-air floral art exhibition in Europe will continue this year to make Cervia a flowery and unique city for its beauty, hospitality and care for greenery.
This 48th edition will obviously be a bit unusual, but we did not want to interrupt the continuity that has been characterizing our town for years for the fantasy and originality of the floral compositions.
The cities, bodies and participating companies that have been invited, unfortunately, will not be able to attend the preparations, however many have made themselves available to collaborate by offering flowers and plants, through the nurserymen of the area and producers from other areas, a testimony of great sensitivity and love for Cervia.
The Green Service is therefore taking steps, a little at a time, to fully restore all the 60 gardens created by the participants of last year's edition, which was dedicated to Riccardo Todoli, and to position information panels not only about the typology of the floral-works, but also to enhance the initiative from the point of view of bonds, collaborations and human relationships.
In particular, in each place there will be a sign with a QRcode which refers to the site of "Cervia Città Giardino" , where it will be possible to read the description and get a lot of other information about the reference garden.
In addition, the Municipality has decided to organize "Flowery corners" an initiative that involves the whole community until the 30th of June. An invitation to contribute, each as he/she sees fit, to decorate and color the balcony, the garden, a corner of the house, a space of his/her own business with flowers and report it to the Municipality, which will take photos and will publish them on the website Garden City and on the social networks.

In Treffz park in Milano Marittima, a garden with a beautiful rose with red and yellow flowers, donated by Mondo Verde Garden, will remember Cervia's friend Adriana Spazzoli. A great supporter of Cervia City Garden event, she disappeared last year together with her husband Giorgio Squinzi, a famous entrepreneur and also president of Confindustria. For years they have been together at the head of the Mapei company. They met when they were young in Milano Marittima to which they always remained bound.
The program will also be enriched by other events related to the pinewood that is being reborn after the grave wound of last July.
An outdoor photographic exhibition about the "Rebirth of the Pinewood", 35 photos by Manuela Guarnieri of the MUSA Cervia Photographic Group. The exhibition will be located in three places in the pinewood which was devastated by the sea trumpet of the 10th July 2019 and will testify the rebirth of the great green heritage that has now returned and can be used.
Futhermore, the following will be remembered: the first tree planted after the sea trumpet donated by Comuni Fioriti, which confers to Cervia the title of "Municipality in Bloom Quality Mark"; trees donated by Lions Cervia Ad Novas planted in Piazzale Genova.
