Always looking to the future
“For 85 years looking to the future”: with this motto, Mapei, the excellence of Italy in the world, celebrates its 85th anniversary. Città Giardino and Mapei are linked by the same vision, which favors harmony between man, the environment and building spaces and demonstrates that it is always possible to support conscious development.
In the Treffz Park a garden dedicated to Adriana Brusholi who, with her husband Giorgio Squinzi, did a lot for Cervia and the event. In the Cadorna rotunda the “dry garden” has become stable, full of specimens of succulent plants.
THE TREFFZ PARK GARDEN
The Mapei Company, partner of our event, has shifted the philosophy that runs through the garden, represented by the possibility of testing the resistance to extreme climatic conditions due to the proximity to the sea, of a series of plants that grow in Mediterranean areas, using the resource water wisely and respectfully of its limitation. The park is covered with various species of sedum that cover boulders and natural ravines of the stones, grasses such as Carex, Pennisetum, Stipa, Miscanthus, Scirpus, Opuntie, botanical Iris. A flowery expanse of Carpobrotus colors the part of the dune protected from the winds.
This philosophy of respect for the environment is fully shared by the Mapei company.
The Treffz Park was reborn in the year 2000, after the meteorological event that the previous year had led to the fall of many domestic and maritime pines. Mario Cesare Rotella, former director of the public gardens of La Spezia and later freelance landscape architect, was commissioned to give new life to the green area. He decided to enliven the surface with boulders, river cobblestones and Japanese-inspired bridges.
In later stages, a pergola with benches and an area with sand dunes were added as a link to the beach.
