The soul of ‘Cervia Città Giardino’ has always been to send a message of joy and hope through flowers. Flowers are a synonym of peace and friendship between peoples and all this has been possible thanks to the many cities, associations, green companies that have shown affection and friendship, even in this last period, giving us plants and flowers to keep the tradition of the “May in Bloom”, giving a signal that our city continues to look ahead, with the colors that bloom again after the darkness of the storm, and that represent a bridge that unites us as a symbol of hope and rebirth.
This message of hope continues this year thanks to a special edition, as in 2022 the 50th anniversary of the event will be celebrated, which over the years has taken on an international character, and the City of Cervia intends to celebrate them by enhancing their commitment for environmental and sustainable policies, carried out for half a century, with particular attention also to the themes of peace, disarmament and brotherhood.
The event now known as “Cervia Garden City” was born in 1972 with the name “Maggio in Fiore”, an open-air floral art exhibition, with a very important and innovative theme, safeguarding greenery, nature, biodiversity.
It was therefore decided to organize an edition dedicated to the celebrations of the fiftieth anniversary with particular attention to the themes of peace, brotherhood among peoples, sustainability and urban biodiversity, which are among the priorities we face especially in this period, providing a rich program with numerous initiatives thanks to the involvement of a series of actors operating in the environmental and cultural sector, able to intrigue and bring everyone, from children to adults, to rediscover and discover a new relationship with nature and with natural beauties, in a logic of sustainable use, but also with human and cultural value, themes that are increasingly important and current now more than ever.
