“To be in harmony with the others is the supreme beauty of life, like a marvellous flower.”
Cervia Garden City – May in Bloom turns 45 and celebrates by dedicating the 2017 edition to the themes of hospitality and multiculturalism.
Over 60 cities, organisations, associations and businesses from all over Europe and from Canada have gathered here to make Cervia, Milano Marittima, Pinarella and Tagliata more beautiful.
A bit of history
Flowers have always been a symbol of peace and friendship amongst people, and Cervia has always been an example of a welcoming town. In fact, it is not by chance that in 1972 the most original event of the gardening sector was created here, a vibrant display involving architects, managers and technicians of public landscaping that every year meet in Cervia to carry out simple actions rich in great symbolic value: planting a new plant and arranging a nice, perfumed garden are actions that make the urban setting and life more comfortable.
That is why – again – in 2017 Cervia will become “Europe’s largest floral outdoor art display”.
The gardens, flower beds and sculptures amidst the green, as well as the other works, are displayed in an “open air museum” during all summer, from the end of May to the end of September, spread in different spots of Cervia, Milano Marittima, Pinarella and Tagliata. Over 350,000 plants and flowers and thousands of squares metres of lawn are deployed every year.
