ROTONDA CADORNA and PARCO TREFFZ – Milano Marittima

“Dante and the Gardens of Eden” Trail

Canto XXIV Purgatorio (103-108)

THE SUSPENDED FRUIT

This creation by Oscar Dominguez consists of a large element resembling a fruit or a seed suspended in height and anchored to the domestic pines, representing the object of desire of the people to whom the poet refers.
On the ground, like hands eager to grasp the desired object, some specimens of Butia capitata, Brahea armata and several varieties of Dasylirion wheeleri.
The Green Service Department of the Municipality of Cervia created these green works.

START THE VIRTUAL TOUR

And when Forese had gone away from us and I was following him just as my mind was rethinking his words (that is, with difficulty), here I saw the laden branches of another tree, and not very far away since only then had I turned in there gaze. I saw under it some souls that raised their hands towards the branches and shouted something, similar to desiring and incapable children, who pray and the one prayed does not answer, but rather holds up the desired object and does not hide it to sharpen their desire.

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.
