Orticolario is an international flower show that sprouts up for three days in a luxury setting on the shores of Lake Como. It is a 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, aided by Lake setting.

The show includes laboratories for adults and children, an amazing flower show, organic food stalls and artisans shops.


The 2018 Edition will take place on October 5th, 6th and 7th in Villa Erba, Cernobbio (Como). Further details will be released later on during the year. Stay tuned and for updates please do check the official Orticolario website.

Villa Erba, Cernobbio (Lake Como)
29th September to 1st October 2017

“The issue is to understand the relationship among the genius loci and the landscape, the architecture and the garden.
One feels to belong to a particular place when all these elements are connected, and every connection is strong and clear”
Fernando Caruncho

“ Orticolario is a garden of knowledge where to seed and invest time, because it blossoms completly renovated with every edition, pushing us to make new discoveries.
The event deserves everyone concentration and observation, without that urge to look at everything in a hurry and not to miss anything, because every time is a different connection between art and landscape, design and botany, where culture for an evolved gardening is the protagonist.
Atmosphere of 2016 Orticolario had to be tasted, felt and understood, while awaiting for 2017 edition… on which we’re already working on…”
Moritz Mantero
More details on the 2017 Edition will be published closer to the Event.
