Diverdeinverde is the event in Bologna that, one weekend a year, offers people the chance to visit the hidden gardens in the city centre and the parks in the foothills and surrounding plains. It is a special opportunity to discover the city from a different viewpoint, enjoy surprising corners and viewpoints, admire large trees and countless different species of plants and flowers, and appreciate both historic and more modern landscape architecture.
Diverdeinverde is going to open the gates and doors of about 50 private and secret gardens from the afternoon of Friday, 17 May until the evening of Sunday, 19 May 2019.
There were about 5,300 paying visitors, most of whom came from Bologna, but there were also some who came from nearby cities and even the rest of Italy. There were also foreign visitors who came to Bologna just to visit Diverdeinverde, and this makes us happy and is gratifying because let’s not forget that the idea to create the show in 2014 was inspired by similar events in two European capitals: London and Amsterdam. Perhaps we have helped make Bologna a bit more international, and this is thanks as well to its gardens and the opportunity to visit the city in an alternative way.
We look forward to seeing you at the sixth edition of Diverdeinverde, which will take place from May 17 to May 19, 2019.
