Escaping The City Life For Roses

Posted on: under General

A rare, small museum in Serramazzoni, Italy, is showcasing 750 different varieties of roses.  Created by designer Roberto Viti and his son Riccardo, the two were looking to escape city life and move to the country.


"We decided to buy a place for a change of life," RiccardoViti told ANSA.  "We already had a passion for garden and plants but this is a totally different thing. We left a garden of 500sq meters and created 43 hectares." With more than 500,000 visitors a year and 3,500 flowers on display, the Museo Giardino della Rosa Antica is open from the beginning of April until the end of October.  The museum also has cooking classes that showcases different recipes to use with rose, including chicken and ice cream.
