Florario is a fancy name but very appropriate to describe a wide variety of issues related to the green philosophy and the will to preserve the ancient and strong bond that connect the man to the world of plants.
According to Alfredo Cattabiani, Florario is a wide and varied collection of information about the green’s universe, with the aim to enable the documentation, through multiple optical observation, the importance that the plants have for the humans.
Myths, legends, symbols and traditions are just some of the areas that demonstrate how, since ancient times, human has deeper meanings attributed to the plant world, constantly seeking contact with it: from prehistoric animism, to the development of agriculture, passing by the famous hanging gardens of Babylon, to the Greek myth of Narcissus or Apollo and Daphne, until the herbs, to the language of flowers and garden’s architecture that still fascinates us so much, every era has seen strengthen the primordial link plant-human.
From this born the idea of Florario.
