One of the installations presented on the Orticolario virtual platform “The Origin” becomes reality. And here is "Delenimentum", the titanic version of the legendary Adirondack Chair, a few steps from the landing stage on the "tip" of the Cernobbio shore. To be seduced by the landscape in a unique way.

Cernobbio (CO), August 2021 - Orticolario continues to (dis) sow its vision of the landscape in the territory, transforming another of the projects presented on the virtual platform “The Origin” into reality. And here is a giant raspberry red throne, a few steps from the elegant Liberty-style landing stage on the "tip" of the Cernobbio shore, on Lake Como, where you can meet up until autumn.


The throne is called "Delenimentum", which means attraction, charm, enchantment, and is the titanic version of the legendary Adirondack Chair, created in 1903 by the designer Thomas Lee during a holiday in the Adirondack mountains, in the state of New York.

The one wanted by Orticolario is handcrafted with recycled wood from the Venetian laboratory Limperfetto (www.limperfetto.design), and will be surrounded by a flower bed set up by the nursery and Piedmontese garden design studio Fratelli Leonelli (www.fratellileonelli.com): very comfortable for everyone, but ideal for two gardeners - as the organizers of Orticolario call those who love life in the garden - who let themselves be seduced by the landscape. In the symbol of that return of being together in the open air.


The installation is carried out with the support of Ethimo (www.ethimo.com), with the contribution of Wide Group (www.widegroup.eu) and with the patronage of the Municipality of Cernobbio.





Orticolario, now in its twelfth edition, is the cultural event dedicated to those who experience nature as a lifestyle. Theater of the event is the botanical park of Villa Erba in Cernobbio (CO), a nineteenth-century residence overlooking the shores of Lake Como, the childhood summer residence of director Luchino Visconti. A distinctive feature of the event is the proposal of thematic gardens and artistic installations inspired by the theme of the year, among which the creations of the selected in the international competition "Creative Spaces" stand out. The title of the 2020 and 2021 edition is "Hypnotic", the theme is "Seduction", while the main plant is the Maple. The event, which in 2019 touched the threshold of 30,000 visitors, is enriched by a wide range of rare, unusual and collectible plants, artistic crafts and design with more than 290 rigorously selected exhibitors, a full calendar of meetings and numerous didactic-creative workshops for children, as well as performances, film screenings in the dungeons of the Villa Antica and floral shows. At the center of the exhibition, art, capable of going further and breaking down the boundaries between inside and outside. During the three days of the event and for the rest of the year, contributions are collected for the Amici di Orticolario Fund, which supports projects for the promotion of landscape culture and for five charitable associations in the area.




In 2020, due to a health emergency, the event became Orticolario "The Origin": a new form, virtual and continuous, but always a "forge" of languages, ingenuity and talents, an experience of the landscape and for the landscape . Hence, Orticolario all year round, accessible from all over the world from computers and any device, including VR (virtual reality) viewers. This is the first and only free cultural-commercial online platform, built in an exhibition center located in a historic park. Developed by Tievent with Matterport 3D technology, thanks to an experimental and pioneering mapping, it allows the user to take a 3D virtual tour in any corner of Villa Erba and its park, to walk in front of the lake and among ancient trees, while meet events and proposals from nurserymen, artisans, designers. And the numbers from which the project started are more than generous: since 2019 the orticolario.it website has registered about 460,600 pages viewed, social networks (between Facebook and Instagram) have exceeded 24,000 followers, the YouTube channel has obtained about 126,900 views, while the newsletter has over 17,700 subscribers. The Origin platform, since October 15, the day it was activated, has reached 45,148 views.
