Orticolario is the autumn event dedicated to nature, which has been held annually at Villa Erba during the first weekend of October since 2009. The event features more than 250 exhibitors in the park and exhibition center overlooking Lake Como.

Orticolario is also social engagement. In fact, the "Friends of Orticolario" Fund has been established, which collects donations destined for social and cultural projects by supporting associations operating in our area, among which is also Sim-patia.

This year's edition will take place from September 28 to October 1, 2023. Sim-patia collaborates with Orticolario in particular for the management of the children's area, for which specific workshops are planned to be held on Saturday, September 30, and Sunday, October 1, dedicated to young future gardeners, artists, and plant enthusiasts.

The contribution provided for participation in the activities will help fund charitable projects. You can also make reservations for the day you prefer online, with direct access to the workshop:
