The magic colours and sweet scents of flowers of Euroflora will soon be back in Genoa, this time against the breathtaking backdrop of the Parks of Nervi. The international flower show, which will be held from 21 April to 6 May 2018, will extend over 86 thousand square meters and 5 kilometres of pathways unravelling amongst wonderful gardens and historical villas overlooking the sea, offering all visitors a unique, immersive experience.
This year’s show will thus deepen its roots in the long-standing tradition of Italian flower shows – Euroflora was first held in 1966 and this year’s will be the eleventh edition – but also offer a new, spectacular format.
Euroflora 2018 has been conceived and designed to disclose the beauty of Genoa’s historical parks at its best, while further enriching them with new flowers and displays that will playfully and skilfully combine different flower and plant shapes, foliage, and colour shades. Water, the earth, air, and fire are the elements represented in the four installations that visitors will be able to discover one after the other along the main pathway, in an emotional crescendo. The public will be welcomed by a pattern of concentric circles made up of tall blue and white flowers and boat ropes, introducing them to the flower display.
500,000 colourful flowers will form large compositions that will stand out against the green shade of the meadows and of the secular trees of the parks. The various displays by floriculturists,landscape designers and institutional partners of Euroflora (municipalities, regions, European and non-European countries) will harmoniously fit in the large, magnificent natural background, turning the parks into a wonderful flowery landscape set against a truly unique backdrop – the sea.
The rose garden, divided into different sections displaying ancient and modern roses produced by leading Italian and foreign hybridisers, will also be at its very best. Its recent restoration allowed to recreate a collection including approximately 200 varieties that take part in contests and every spring bloom to delight all the parks’ visitors.
At Euroflora 2018, every visitor will be able to choose his or her own personal way of visiting the show, following the theme that inspires them the most: EUROFLORA visual experience, EUROFLORA as a path of fragrances, EUROFLORA as the epitome of nature, EUROFLORA as a dance of flowers and musical notes.
Euroflora is the most important flower show in Europe. A member of the Association of International Floralies, since its very first edition (held in 1966) it has been recognised by the Association Internationale des Producteurs Horticoles.
