Orticolario 2012 – First prize award

My garden Giardino d'Amor Novo won first prize for best in show at Orticolario 2012, Villa Erba, Cernobbio. I am utterly overjoyed and did not expect it in the least given the quality of all the other entrants.

A hearftelt thank you goes to Marco Carmazzi and his men for supplying all the plants and setting up the garden, and the brilliant Luca Montrone from Disano illuminazione for lighting design.

Above all, I am deeply grateful to the Creative Director, Stefano Passerotti, and Head of Orticolario, Moritz Mantero, for giving me the opportunity to exhibit in such a marvellous event.

Il verdetto della giuria

“Per la coerenza, ricerca e ricchezza varietale espressa in un piccolo spazio. Per il coinvolgimento estetico ed emotivo che la realizzazione esprime, stimolando la curiosità e i sensi, senza forti contrasti cromatici, ma con molta armonia”

The jury's verdict

“For [the garden's] coherence, research and rich variety expressed within a small area. For the aesthetic and emotional participation that the garden stimulates, arousing curiosity and one's senses, without strong colour contrast but with a high degree of harmony”
