The Garden of Wonders in the Heart of Milan: from Milano Design Week to Expo-2015
Although the majority of ad-hoc MDW exhibitions and connected happenings expired with the end of the Milano Design Week, some others remain open to public waiting for EXPO-2015. In fact, many Fuorisalone events, especially those related to “food & flavors”, are bridging the two major episodes of Milan of 2015 through their everyday presence.
L’Orto Botanico di Brera and its “Garden of wonders: journey through scents” is one of such must-see installations.
This Brera garden itself is a beautiful place worth to be seen by any Milano guest. Back to 1774 it was founded by famous Maria Theresa, the sovereign of Austria, Hungary, Croatia, Bohemia, Mantua, Milan and Parma, and, by marriage, the Duchess of Lorraine, Grand Duchess of Tuscany and Holy Roman Empress. And today it represent a unique heritage: a 5000 sq. mt. hortus containing about 300 different species.
L’Orto Botanico di Brera and its perfumery installations will stay open till May 24th.
