Events in Ghizzano Sound Garden

The ‘30s historical garden used to be an apple orchard in the end of ‘800. While it detains the typical topiary art and symmetries of the period, the Garden distinguishes itself for its unusual majestic trees and for its wonderful arched cypress’ telescope, that leads your look to the ‘800 terracotta sculpture of Pomona. The path through the holly oak’s gallery is very suggestive. The Sound Garden opens only in summer.

The Garden is open to public every Sunday from the last Sunday in May to the first one of September, from 5.00 pm to 8.00 pm. It opens on appointment during the other days of the year. Free entry.

Every year the Garden hosts “La Verde Armonia” Festival.

Cultural Recreation


The Goal of these activities is letting the kids experience their games in an open and protect space. The aim is to give life again to the physics aspects of playing, hardly experimented in nowadays. Hence, the activities promote the contact with nature within a game dimension, the discovery of the body and the space that the body occupies into the space as well as the freedom of movement arising from the experience.

Another important purpose is to propose a significant experience that is able to bring back the children to the nature and their nature, as to educate them to the knowledge of the body and the nutrition; These activities are always considered within the wider context of the knowledge of the area and, as a consequence, of the knowledge of the continuity between the territory and their products. The main idea is to explain how production can be obtained through modern tools, without altering the environmental context and the final product, that goes on their table and inside their stomach. Every activity is thought and carried with the maximum respect for the environment, supporting or restoring, where needed, the natural ongoing of the events. This is because we want to teach seeing the nature as a friend rather than an enemy to destroy. We educate the children to the environmental respect teaching how it is the foundation of self-respect.
