One of the most important archetype related to the garden came from the poet Homer who described the enclosed garden within the Alcinoo’s Palace where utilitaristic plants, especially citrus plants but also vegetables flourished. This garden, because of its continuity of production, has always been associated with the image of the eternal spring, strictly connected to the Traditional Mediterranean garden.

The theme around productive and useful gardens is still widely present today: a green space which yields fruits, flowers, biodiversity, scents, emotions, oxygen, relax, fun, restoring energy, is an evergreen archetype.

For this reason, the proposed theme for the 2019 Garden Festival edition is the Productive garden which combines in an original way, for the man of the third millennium, the ancestral need for utility with the new aesthetic needs of the contemporary society.
