The Yin and the Yang. Garden dedicated to Riccardo Todoli
In this area of Cervia, where sun and shade alternate during the day, an enchanted garden full of colourful flowers is created. In the centre stands the symbolic representation of Yin and Yang, translated from Chinese as “the sunny side and the shady side of the hill”, Day and Night, Fire and Water, Heaven and Earth.
Here the magical sounds of nature coexist, mingling with the chattering of the people, composing themselves with the rustling of leaves moved by the wind. Next to the symbol, small flowering areas in the shape of water drops have been created to recall the importance of this important element that should not be wasted.
In this garden strongly characterised by shade, a number of flower varieties are being experimented with to see which ones will be able to give light and colour even in the darkest areas of the gardens by limiting irrigation as much as possible.
The new varieties planted are in particular Sunpatiens Compact and Patio, Impatiens New Guinea, Begonia Sensy and Calibrachoa Jambo. The project and realisation are by Mauro Paradisi, International Judge of Communities in Bloom Canada.
