1 Diverdeinverde programme (to be accompanied by the map) BOLOGNA, 18-20 MAY 2018 Three days to discover that Bologna is a garden Diverdeinverde is returning for its fifth year. This is the annual event dedicated to private gardens located in Bologna’s historic centre, in the foothills and other outlying areas of the city. We are pleased to once again invite our citizens as well as the ever greater number of aficionados from other cities, regions and countries to what we consider to be a feast for the eyes. Every year, we try to make this event even richer and more wonderful, discovering new green areas of our city.

This year, there are fifty private gardens that will magically open their gates thanks to the kindness of their owners who understand the cultural importance of this initiative and have placed their trust in us and in the visitors. Along with the gardens, we are pleased to once again offer musical events thanks to the Teatro Comunale di Bologna and powerful literary readings with the Coop Alleanza 3.0’s Ad alta voce program. As with every year, our greatest sense of satisfaction comes from seeing so many people in the streets in and around the city carrying the Diverdeinverde programme in their hands with smiles on their faces and a pleasant sense of anticipation as they move from one garden to the next.

We kindly ask the visitors, as it was wonderfully done in the first three editions, to walk on tiptoe in these private places that open with so much grace and availability to the visit and, for the rest, we hope in the good weather and satisfaction of all.

The most important acknowledgement goes, as always, to the owners who, with great generosity and at no charge, joined the event by opening their gardens to visitors. Special thanks go to the entities, companies, associations and to the many friends who gave us in a variety of ways a hand to prepare and realize the event. A special thanks for the hospitality goes to Orfeonica Association, to Casa Carducci, to the Civic Mueseum of Risorgimento, to the Bologna Curia and to the Parish of San Giovanni in Monte, to Hercolani-Belpoggio Villa and to FAI and ADSI who favoured the opening of their associates’ gardens.
