Since Orticolario was born, the plot of the story has thickened and, just as it happens in the novels, has taken directions until then unthinkable. Orticolario began like this: from a passion blossomed as a child, while secretly observing the family gardener. A never dormant passion which has remained silent for so many years, like a coin in the pocket that occasionally reminds you of something. It then became real in 2009 when Moritz, together with a group of friends, decided to weave its concept of gardening, nature, beauty and art, with charitable and cultural purposes, to spread the culture of the landscape and support social activities in the Larian area. Orticolario reflects Moritz Mantero's soul, he art and mind. It is an event that is not easy to understand, concentrated and containing so many visions. It is an event whose purpose is to inspire an atypical look at the garden so that it can be lived more like a "room outside".
An experience between design, art and thematic gardens, together with rare, unusual and collectible plants, and artistic craftsmanship.
